Hearing oneself reciting the Takbeer-e-tahreema

Q: I wanted to ask regarding takbeer tahreema for namaaz. I have learnt that it is necessary to say it loud enough to hear oneself otherwise salah doesn’t start. I wanted to ask, do you have to hear the takbeer clearly or is it enough to hear the sound? Also, if I only hear parts of the tahreema, and not others, will my salaah be counted?


A: Though it is important to hear one’s voice while reciting takbeer-e-tahreema, however if one did not hear oneself and only moved the lips, the Salaah will be valid. For further details refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/4588

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