When you pray i heard that you must move your lips. I am confused whether or not this is sunnat or fard? Also if you do have to do this, do you have to move your lips to every syllable in salat? I am finding this very hard to do. It took me 25 minutes to pray Dhur and i am feeling very overwhelmed and stressed, instead of relaxed. Please let me know.
Say, "Call upon Allah or call upon the Most Merciful. Whichever [name] you call - to Him belong the best names." And do not recite [too] loudly in your prayer or [too] quietly but seek between that an [intermediate] way.
So, while adjusting the volume, you can automatically adjust the movement of your lips, can't you? And I don't think there any Hadith which talk about this matter. So, if someone finds something, please do add it.
Allah knows the best.
Yes you should move your lips while reciting Quran. So it's fard not sunna. But you don't have to pray for 25 minutes!
