Acts that Nullify Salah

Mufsidaat-e-Namaaz
(breakers in Namaaz)
 

(Mufsidaat-e-Namaaz are factors which nullify the prayers (Namaaz) and make it necessary to be repeated.)

The following are some of the MUFSIDAAT:

1. To TALK in Namaaz KNOWINGLY or UNKNOWINGLY, a FEW WORDS or MANY will NULLIFY the Namaaz.

2. To GREET a person by Assalamu Alaikum, or by any other method while performing Namaaz.
