What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Is it allowed to repeat a verse of the Qur’ān if one makes a mistake in pronouncing it while praying salāh. Will salāh become invalid from this?

If one makes a mistake in pronunciation, then there is no problem in reciting the verse again; salāh does not become invalid from this.

Just as it is mentioned in Bahār-e-Sharī’at that if a word was read repetitively, (then if doing so causes the meaning to be altered, the salāh will be invalidated, such as in reading رَبِّ رَبِّ الْعٰلَمِيْنَۙ or   مٰلِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّيْنِؕ مٰلِكِ where it was read with the deliberate intent of making an addition (i.e. repeating). In other words, Rabb of Rabb and Mālik of Mālik;) and if one recited it repeatedly to correct the pronunciation, or if it was uttered without deliberate intent, or if one did not intend anything at all, then in all these cases, the salāh will not become invalid.
