Saying "uh" during prayer

Question: If a person says “uh” in prayer when they get stuck in the recitation of the Quran, will that invalidate the prayer? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

It is mentioned in Durrul Mukhtar: “Speaking invalidates the prayer- that is pronouncing two letters (or more) or one letter which is understood (i.e. the letter possesses a meaning, e.g. “ِق ” which means safeguard [in the command form]).” Hence, the word “uh” which is spelled as “آ” in Arabic will not invalidate the prayer because it only comprises one letter.
