Recite surahs in prayers

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamalaikum wa ramatullah

In the namaaz, do we have to recite two consecutive Suras from the Quraan , in the two successive rakaats.

Recite surahs in prayers

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is absolutely no condition in light of the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that one has to recite consecutive Surahs in consecutive raakahs in the salaah; although it is absolutely permissible to do so. One may recite any combination of Surahs and Aayahs, preferably in the order it has been gathered in the Holy Quran.


For example, one may recite Aayahs 1-3 of Surah 2 (Baqarah) in the first Rakah, and then recite Aayahs 22-26 of Surah 7 (Aaraaf) in the second; or one may recite Aayahs 10-12 of Surah 12 (Yusuf) in the first rakah, and the full 114th Surah (An-Naas) in the second rakah; or one may recite 110th Surah (Nasr) in the first and the 113th Surah (Falaq) in the second.


One may recite any combination of Aayahs/Aayahs, or Aayahs/Surah, or Surah/Surah from the Holy Quran, preferably in the order it has been collected in the Quran.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
