Q: I happened to pray zuhr salah at home, but as soon as I started to pray, a family member unintentionally started to talk to somebody loudly and with the other person on speaker.

Is this salah valid or does it need to be repeated?

A:
Although there was no focus, nevertheless the Salaah is valid and does not have to be repeated.
