Doubts in Surah Faatiha

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In my ‘Asr Salaah I recited a verse of Surah Faatihah and whilst reciting I thought I made a mistake, and thought I’d repeat that verse and I didn’t
stop reciting until I finished the verse, and then I recited again, but during the verse in which I thought I made a mistake, I was like “Shouldn’t I stop?” But I carried on until finishing that verse; now I wonder, does this count as a purpose addition in prayer by finishing the verse in which I thought to have made a mistake? And is my Salaah valid?


A: The salaah is valid.

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