Stopping the recitation in the middle of an Ayah to take a breath
There is no objection to
pausing while reciting an Ayah to take a breath if there is a need for this, whether this occurs during Salah or anywhere else. However, if the meaning of the Ayah is not complete or is disrupted because of this pause or because of beginning with what follows after this pause, it is preferable to repeat a part of the Ayah that would complete its meaning.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
