I started praying Isha around 11:50 pm because I was having issues keeping my wudu. I pray quite slowly so I finished 2 minutes past 12am. I heard Isha should be prayed before 12am so because my Salah went over 12am am I required to repeat ?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

Salah is valid. However, it is Makruh Tanzihi to delay it without a valid reason till after half of the night.

(و) تأخير (عشاء إلى ثلث الليل) قيده في الخانية وغيرها بالشتاء، أما الصيف فيندب تعجيلها (فإن أخرها إلى ما زاد على النصف) كره لتقليل الجماعة، أما إليه فمباح.(الدر المختار١/٣٦٦،٣٦٧)

And Allah knows best
