Repeating al-Faatihah during prayer

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalamu Alaikum

What is the hukm(rule) for repeating Surat al-Fatiha if you do not think you had enough Khushu(Peace and fear of Allah) in your first recitation.

Jazak Allahu Khiran

Praise be to Allaah.

We do not advise you to do this, in case it opens the way for Shaytaan’s whispers. Try to concentrate (khushoo’) during prayer. One of the best ways to focus during prayer is to remember death.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
