What is the Ruling of Mispronouncing the Adhkar of the Prayer?

Question: What is the ruling of mispronouncing the remembrances of the prayer?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate


Errors in the Remembrances of the Prayers

Regarding errors in pronunciation, many scholars have deemed such mistakes excused, when not done deliberately. [Ibn ‘Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar citing Hunduwani, Halwani, and others] This is due to a lack of knowledge of the rules becoming widespread.


It is advisable that you seek out a local scholar from whom you can learn the foundational knowledge of the religion. It will also do you well to read to them the remembrances of the prayer and have them correct you therein. Likewise, this can be done with your recitation of Qur’an.
We should constantly be aiming to deepen our understanding and advance the practice of our religion while beseeching Allah Most High to guide us and help us in our journey
