How Should I Go About Difficulties in Reciting the Takbir During Prayer?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salam alaykum,

I have trouble in the way I recite the takbir. Because many of the times it sounds like Allahwuakbar or allah hu akabar … This has lead to a lot of problem during prayer. What should I do?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

Forget about what it sounds like, and ignore merely misgivings (waswasa). Say the takbir and begin the prayer, asking Allah for facilitation beforehand.
