Repeat salaah because of no khushoo’

Fatwaa ID: 729

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
If someone performs salah and feel that they lack khushu
Should they perform their salah again?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

No. If you perform salaah and feel that you lacked therein in khushoo’, you should not repeat it. Rather, make istighfaar and then try to identify the reason for this. Perform additional nafl prayers while trying to maintain and experience the khushoo’.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
