Question

If the Imam read: فاستخفنك الذين لا يوقنون , instead of: ولايستخفنك الذين لا يوقنون – is the salah fasid?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

If the imam makes a mistake that will change the meaning of the Qur’ān; either by adding, subtracting or reading another word in place of that word, then the prayer will be fāsid. In this case, the absence of the ‘la’ changes the meaning of the sentence.[1]
