Prayers & Duties >> Salah (Prayer)

Question # : 165221


During salah in the fourth ayath of Surah Kafirun I used to read 'wala anaa' instead of 'walaa ana'. Recently only I came to know that the alif in 'ana' is not pronounced. Would this mistake change the meaning and is my salah valid. Do I need to repeat my salah?

It is written as ‘anaa’ but it is read as ‘ana’. There is no difference in meaning. All your salahs which you offered with ‘anaa’ are valid without any doubt; there is no need to repeat them.
