One Who Said a Beracha in His Mind Without Articulating the Words

One Who Said a Beracha in His Mind Without Articulating the Words
Day: Friday
Date: January 29, 2016
Parshat: Yitro
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 206


Ideally, when saying a beracha one should hear the words. However, even if he did not hear the words he is still considered to have said the beracha as long as he did actually articulate the words. If he was saying the beracha before eating food or doing a mitzvah but did not articulate and instead only thought the words of the beracha, he should think to himself the following words: "baruch shem kevod malchuto le'olam va'ed" and then articulate the beracha. If the beracha that he thought to himself was Asher Yatzar, any (or all) of the morning berachot, or an after beracha, no new beracha is said. One who does not understand Hebrew can say the beracha in any language he understands.
