is my salah valid?

Q:

Salaam Alaikum, whilst i was praying isha, in the silent rakats i have great difficulty with pronunciation, especially when i say ‘Allahu Akbar’ to go into ruku, because of this whilst i was moving to go into ruku from my standing position i paused midway for a second or maybe less to be able to say ‘Allahu Akbar’ between the movements, if i didn’t paused; i would’ve say the takbeer while in ruku due to my slow recitation, so my Question is, is my prayer valid even though i paused my movement for a second midway going down into ruku? May Allah bless you

 

A:

Wa alaykum as-salamu wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuh

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Thank you for your good question.

Your Salah (prayer) is valid and rewardable, in shaa’ Allah.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) gave glad tidings to those who read the Quran with difficulty saying, “Whoever recites the Quran and masters it by heart, will be with the noble righteous scribes (in Heaven). And, whoever exerts himself/herself to learn the Qur’an by heart and recites it with great difficulty, will have a double reward.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Meanwhile, you may join some Arabic classes to improve your Arabic and easily recite Quran.

May Allah accept your and our good deeds, ameen.

Almighty Allah knows best.
