Should One Do the Prostration of Forgetfulness Due to Pronunciation Errors?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question

In Salah, is the prostration of forgetfulness required if one repeats verses due to pronunciation errors? (Hanafi School)

Answer

You should not be repeating verses due to pronunciation errors. For the most part, such non-deliberate errors are completely excused. Further, even reciting with correct tajwid is not a requirement in the Hanafi school. Focus on your recitation outside of the prayer, and recite verses once within it.

And Allah Most High alone knows best.
