Question: Asalaamu alaikum
I know the rules of Tajwid but I always make mistakes in my recitation during prayer because it is difficult for me to remember those rules. I cry a lot because of that because my prayers will never be accepted. What should I do?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
Mistakes in recitation or pronunciation don’t affect the validity of your prayer.
Work on your tajwid outside of the prayer, and focus on what you are doing during the prayer itself.
See: Should I Repeat My Qur’an and Du’a Recitations Due to Errors in Pronunciation? and: The Sunna Method of Reciting the Qur’an and the Legal Status of Reciting With Tajwid
And Allah alone gives success.
