Missing a verse of a Surah in Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Missing a verse of a Sūrah in Ṣalāh


I was performing Ṣalāh, and I missed a verse from Sūrah Kāfirūn and continued thereafter and completed the Sūrah. Do I have to repeat my Ṣalāh?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم


The Ṣalāh is valid and does not need to be repeated.

قال الحصكفي في الدر المختار (١/٤٥٨) في واجبات الصلاة: (وضم) أقصر (سورة) كالكوثر أو ما قام مقامها، هو ثلاث آيات قصار، نحو: ثم نظر، ثم عبس وبسر، ثم أدبر واستكبر، وكذا لو كانت الآية أو الآيتان تعدل ثلاثا قصارا، ذكره الحلبي، انتهى. وراجع الأصل (١/١٩٦، طبعة قطر)۔
