Doubts with regards to mistakes in Salaah

Q: I have constant waswas.

1. When I am reciting suras in salah or reciting tashahud sometimes the letters do not come out loud enough so I can hear. Is my Salaah still valid?

2. If I make a mistake in reciting in Salah how far do I go back to correct myself. Do I restart from one whole verse or just from where I made the mistake.

3. In tashahud I didn’t say “warahmatullah hi barakatu” properly, so I went back to that bit and recited it again. Is the salaah valid?



1. It is valid.

2. The place where you made the mistake.

3. Yes

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