Question

Asalam alaikum I made a mistake while reciting tashahud and i repeated it immediately Is my prayer still valid?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

Your Prayer is valid as it does not become invalidated by repeating Tashahhud.

Al-Majmoo’ authored by an-Nawawi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him reads: “Also, if he repeats the last Tashahhud and sends blessing and peace on the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) deliberately, his Prayer does not become invalidated.” [End of quote]

Al-Bahr Ar-Raaiq, a Hanafi book, reads: "If he repeats the Tashuhhud in the last sitting, then he is not required to prostate for forgetfulness. End of quote.

Allah knows best.
