As-salamu alaykum. I was leading the salah in
which I should have recited surah Fatihah
out loud e.g. fajr, maghrib or isha. However,
by mistake, I recited to myself in silence. I
don't recall now if I completed the recitation
of Surat al-Fatihah in silence or whether I
only recited part of it. I then realised my
error and recited out loud from the
beiginning of the surah, continued the salah
and did sujud as-sahw after the taslim at the
end. Was my action correct i.e. reciting the
surah out loud on realising my error or was
it deliberate and unnecessary repetition of a
pillar of the salah? Jazakllah khayr.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

The Sunnah is to recite loudly during the
prayers one is supposed to recite aloud, and
to recite silently where one is supposed to
recite silently. Whoever does the contrary,
i.e. recites loudly where one is supposed to
recite silently and vice-versa, then he
contradicted the Sunnah but his prayer is
As regards whether or not he should
prostrate for forgetfulness, then the scholars
differed in opinion in this regard.
However, whoever prostrates for
forgetfulness, then he kept himself on the
safe side.

Moreover, the scholars differed in
opinion about whoever recites Al-Faatihah
silently whereby he should have recited it
loudly, and then he remembers while reciting
it, whether or not he should start from the
beginning or just continue the remaining
parts aloud. Some scholars are of the
view that he should start from the beginning
as long as he did not bow down, and others
are of the view that he should just resume.

However, since you started from the
beginning, then you have acted according to
a considerable opinion of the scholars
. Those of the first opinion have no
evidence proving that adopting the other
opinion invalidates ones prayer. Rather, all
things the considered, the second is the
more correct opinion.
