Having a Hiccup while Praying
Fatwa No: 446656

Question

Salaam,Is my prayer valid if I stated to have hiccups while praying and then continued to pray even though the hiccups were frequent throughout the prayer - it would interior during my recitation but I would just repeat the parts that got interrupted. JazakAllahKhair

Answer

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  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

As long as you have performed the pillars of the Prayer and its obligations as they should be performed, the occurrence of this hiccup during the prayer does not harm and your prayer does not become invalidated due to it.

Allah Knows best.
