Ruling 1002

Whenever one doubts whether or not he has pronounced a verse or a word correctly – for example, he doubts whether or not he recited قُلْ هُوَ اللهُ أَحَدٌ [qul huwal lāhu aḥad]33 correctly – he can ignore his doubt. However, if he repeats that verse or word in a correct manner as a precautionary measure, there is no problem; and even if he doubts it several times he can repeat it several times. However, if it becomes obsessive it is better not to repeat it.

33 The first verse of Sūrat al-Ikhlāṣ (Chapter 112).
