Pronouncing few words incorrectly in salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. I recited ‘saliheen’ with a bottom throat ‘ha’ and noticed during the middle of reciting it during the enlongation of the last syllable. During the elongation of ‘heen’, even after I realised, I still pronounced it with my lower throat. Is this considered intentionally reciting something wrong and did it invalidate my prayer?

2. During the du’a portion of Witr, I usually recite Rabbana Atina Fidunya 3 times. The second time I recited it, it felt like I had recited ‘Rabbana atina fidunya hasanatan wa qina adhabanar’ as opposed to the correct full invocation. Because of my uncertainty, can I assume my prayer is sound?



1. The salaah is done. In future be more careful.

2. Yes.

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