Problem reciting a certain portion of Attahiyyaat

Q: I have a problem reciting a certain part of the Tahiyyaat in Tashahhud. The part is: “…wa alaa ibadillaah’is salihin..” I have trouble pronouncing the last letter “n” out. Is it also permissible to read that part as: “…wa alaa ibaadillaah as salihin..” ? Thus “ibaadillaah” and “as” seperately, instead of connected as “ibaadillaah`is”?


A: The meaning will be right.

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