Repeating a verse of Surah Faatihah while performing salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I heard in salah, errors to do with waqf dont matter. Does this apply to stopping in the middle of a word and then resuming?

I attempted reciting waladhaleen twice and every time between the ‘leen’ part, my voice stopped because of an obstruction in my throat. However, the third time I tried again and the same thing happened, after the pause, my voice came back a second later and finished reciting the remaining letters. Because I paused abruptly, is my salah fine?


A: If for some reason you could not read and you had to repeat the verse then it is alright.

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