Mistake in recitation
Q- If the Imam makes a mistake in his recitation during the audible prayers, such as omitting a verse or part of a verse, or altering the words of a verse by mistake... should he be corrected by the worshipper who is being led by him?
A – If the Imam makes a mistake in his recitation, by omitting a verse or by some grammatical error therein, it is prescribed for those behind him to correct him. If the mistake is in Surah Al-Fatihah, he must be corrected, because its recitation is a pillar of the prayer; unless the mistake does not change the meaning of the Verse, in which case, it is not obligatory to correct him, such as would be the case if he recited: Ar-Rahmana or Ar-Rahima or the like.

Q- When we think about doing a good deed, Satan comes and whispers, “You are only doing that ostentatiously, to be seen of men and for good reputation.” Therefore, we don’t do that good deed. How can one remain free of such occurrences?
A – One can remain free of such occurrences by seeking refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan, as well as by continually performing good deeds. He should not pay attention to such whisperings that make him stop doing such good deeds. If he turns away from such whisperings and seeks refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan, such whisperings will stop by the Permission of Allah.
