    Title: Doubt regarding reciting quran in namaz

    Question: I was leading the Friday Jumuah prayer as imam. Mistakenly I recited surah Lahab in first rakah and surah Kafirun in second rakah. Whereas in the holy Quran surah Kafirun comes first (108th chapter) and surah Lahab comes next to it (111th chapter). Can you advice because of this mistake will the salah become invalid? I heard from some other imam saying this is not an issue if it happens unknowingly. Can you please advise?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 271/271/B=03/1437) If the order of surahs was reversed by mistake then the salah was valid without a doubt. The other imam told the correct ruling.
