Pronouncing a letter incorrectly in salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have heard that in Surah Fatiha اَلۡحَمۡدُ has to be pronounced from the throat otherwise the meaning will be changed. I pronounced all my previous prayers without pronouncing it from my throat, are all my previous prayers invalid and do I have to repeat them?


A: Your salaahs are valid. You do not have to repeat your salaah.

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