Mispronouncing letters in salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Recently I learned to read the Quran and learned that a lot of the surahs I recite during salah (including Fatiha), I had been misprouncing. It was small mistakes like pronouncing س in places where there should be ص or ث. Was my salah valid even with these mistakes?


A: Yes, however you should go to a hafiz or aalim and learn how to recite correctly.

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