If the Imam makes a Mistake in Recitation and no One corrects Him

If the Imam makes a Mistake in Recitation and no One corrects Him

 


Question:

If the Imam recites what is easy for him in the prayer and then he forgot the words of a Verse... and no one among the worshippers was able to correct him, should he make the Takbir and end the Rakah, or should he recite another Surah?
Answer:

He is free to choose, if he wishes, he may make the Takbir and end the Rakah, or, if he prefers, he may recite a Verse or Verses from another Surah according to what the pure Sunnah requires of him in the prayer in which he is reciting - if it (i.e. the mistake) is in other than Surah Al-Fatihah. As for Al-Fatihah, he must recite all of it, because its recitation is one of the pillars of the prayer. And Allaah is the Granter of success.
