Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: An Imaam performed Fajr Salaah, he recited Surah غاشية. In this Surah he read وجوه يومئذ غاشية instead of خاشعة. Will the Salaah have to be repeated?

The Imaam occasionally gets confused between laam and raa, should he be making Imamat?


A: No.

He should be released.

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