Using the Warsh style of recitation during Salah

Q 3: Is it permissible to recite the Qur’an during Salah (Prayer) using the Warsh style of recitation, taking into consideration that we usually recite using the Hafs style on the authority of `Asim?


A: The Warsh style of recitation on the authority of Nafi’ is recognized as sound and authentic, according to the scholars of Qira’at (recitation styles of the Qur’an). However, reciting in a style that people are not familiar with, such as the Hafs style, may confuse them. It is therefore preferable not to do this. However, if the person who is reciting is a Munfarid (person offering Prayer individually), they can use it, because the possibility of confusion is eliminated.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
