Q: If in salah on my own, I am reciting out loud and I recite bismillah out loud, and half way through it I stop, and re-recite it silently, is my salah invalidated? Also, is it invalidated if I recite it out loud and complete the recitation of it out loud only to re-recite it silently? I also have the same question but instead of Bismillah, I recite ameen out loud. Does reciting ameen out loud invalidate the prayer? also, if it does, would rectifying the ameen out loud by reciting it again straight after silently, cause the prayer to be valid again? Another question I have is that during the salah, I said some of the takbeers out loud and others including possibly ‘Sami Allahu liman hamida’ silently. Would this inconsistency render my salah invalid?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
