Q: As far as I am aware, speaking intentionally or unintentionally will nullify the salaah and it will have to be re-prayed again according to the hanafi maddhab (although, if I am incorrect in my understanding then please correct me jazak Allah khayr). The question I would like to ask is that say for example, if I recite اَللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ and in my heart I say Aameen but my tongue may move slightly unintentionally, however there is no sound of any letters coming out, can that be classed as speaking in Salaah?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
