Making a mistake with ا ، ع ، س ، ص

Q: My local imam makes some mistakes sometimes in salaah and I need to know whether these mistakes invalidate the prayer.

Mistake 1) The imam sometimes says hamza/alif Instead of saying ein for reciting quran, does this invalidate the prayer?

Mistake 2) For the name of Allah, Al-Quddus in the quran, the imam changes the seen into a saad-does this invalidate the prayer?



1. No.

2. No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
