Correcting the imaam

Q: What is the condition of the salaah if the imam makes the following mistakes

1. In takbeer the kaaf is read with a kasra

2. In fatiha, the laam of Alhamdu is read with a fatha

3. In Tasmee the meem of samia is pulled a little

4. In the last Ayah of surah nasr, the word rabb is omitted thus reading: bihamdika

A: We suggest that you correct the imaam regarding the takbeer and tasmee. Leaving out the word "rabb" is a major mistake for which the namaaz must be repeated.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
