632: Repeating al-Faatihah during prayer


Assalamu Alaikum

What is the hukm(rule) for repeating Surat al-Fatiha if you do not think you had enough Khushu(Peace and fear of Allah) in your first recitation.

Jazak Allahu Khiran

Praise be to Allaah.

We do not advise you to do this, in case it opens the way for Shaytaan’s whispers. Try to concentrate (khushoo’) during prayer. One of the best ways to focus during prayer is to remember death.
