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

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is pleasing to note your devotion in your prayers.

Ignore the thoughts that come to your mind. Do not entertain them. They are from Shaitaan. Consider what you have read to be correct and do not repeat anything. We advise you, for the peace of your mind, to recite the Surahs and du’aas you know, rather all the recitals of the salaah, to a Qaari or an ‘Aalim and allow him to correct your mistakes, if any. Once he approves of your recitation, recite it in that manner and do not entertain any further doubts.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
