Regarding validity of salah due to mistake in recitation of surah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
During salah in the fourth ayath of Surah Kafirun I used to read ‘wala anaa’ instead of ‘walaa ana’. Recently only I came to know that the alif in ‘ana’ is not pronounced. Would this mistake change the meaning and is my salah valid. Do I need to repeat my salah?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is written as ‘anaa’ but it is read as ‘ana’. There is no difference in meaning. All your salahs which you offered with ‘anaa’ are valid without any doubt; there is no need to repeat them.

Allah knows Best!
