Reciting in one’s mind in Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: A few years had passed where I used to recite Qirat and tasbeehaat in Salaah silently. Do I need to repeat all those Salaah? Most of my Salaah I performed was with jamaat. However, in that 8 year period I am not sure how many Salaah I performed individually. How would I calculate how many Salaah I need to redo in this instance?


A: If it was with the movement of the lips the namaaz is valid. If the recitation of the Qur’aan was not with the movements of the lips then the namaaz is invalid.

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