Salaam Sometimes when reciting in Ruku or Sajda, I forget if I had recited an odd no. of times. Is ur Namaaz still valid if u recited an even amount of times by mistake. Jazakallah



Answer

In the name of Allah the greatest

Yes your namaz is valid. It is Mustahab to recite in odd numbers.
(Al-Hidayaah Vol 1 Pg 110)

Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah narrates the Hadith which says,

? Verily, Allah is odd [meaning that Allah is one and it is an odd number] and He loves odd numbers.
(Muslim, No. 4835)
