I have just found out that not pronouncing the arabic alphabets correctly nullifies a salaat. I used to pronounce incorrectly.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I have just found out that not pronouncing the arabic alphabets correctly nullifies a salaat. Should I offer my prayers as qadha salaat for the years that I used to pronounce incorrectly.

Answer

The statement you make is very general, hence, incorrect. Correct
pronunciation of the Arabic letters is very important, and every Muslim
should do his utmost to learn and practice this branch of Deen. But only on
a very few rare occasion will this mispronunciation lead to the Salaat
becoming nullified. The Salaat will only be nullified if one is sure that
such a serious and rare error has indeed occurred. Since you are not sure of
such an errorm your Salaat is considered valid and you do not have to repeat
your Salaat.

However, do make an earnest effort to learn Tajweed (science of
pronunciation).
