Hazrat, during Tarawih salah, I had a remnant of food stuck in my morsel tooth. I only realised this whilst I was in the state of qiyam, I picked it with my tongue, and swallowed it. I am uncertain if it was less than the size of a chickpea.

Was the salah valid?


 الجواب وبالله التوفيق

The salahwill become invalidated and should be repeated, if the size of the food particle was equal to the size of chickpea.
