Does Allah accept the worshipping of a person which is performed incorrectly but sincerely?

Dear Brother / Sister,
Allah accepts every form of worshipping which a person performs incorrectly but sincerely. However, we need to comply with the criteria He sets. Avoiding the obligatory parts of the prayer knowingly and deliberately is against the validity of the prayer and makes a person responsible. Nonetheless, if they are committed unintentionally, our Lord still grants the reward for that prayer. If we make a mistake in obligatory parts of the prayer and we notice this later, we should perform that prayer again. The prayer performed incorrectly in the obligatory parts is considered as a supererogatory prayer. If the parts of the prayer other than the obligatory parts are performed incorrectly, we do not need to perform it again.
