What surahs to read in prayer
In the name of Allah,fd 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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT IS TO BE READ IN THIRD AND FOURTH RAKAAT OF NAMAAZ.IN MAGRIB AND ISHAA AND ASRA.
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 1.723 Narrated by Ubada bin As Samit
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Whoever does not recite Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid."
One of the obligatory conditions of a prayer is that the blessed Surah Al-Fatihah be recited in each and every ‘rakah’ of the prayer; thus in the third ‘rakah’ of ‘Magrib’, and in the third and the fourth ‘rakah’ of the ‘Dhuhr’, ‘Asr’ and ‘Isha’ prayers one must recite the Surah Al-Fatihah.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.739 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Qur'an is recited in every prayer and in those prayers in which Allah's Messenger (saws) recited aloud for us, we recite aloud in the same prayers for you; and the prayers in which the Prophet (saws) recited quietly, we recite quietly. If you recite "Surah Al-Fatiha" only it is sufficient, but if you recite something else in addition, it is better.
It is the preferred Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to recite a few verses of the Quran after the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah in the first two rakahs of every prayer; but this is not a compulsory or obligatory condition of prayer. If one, for any reason, forgets to recite other verses of the Glorious Quran after Surah Al-Fatihah in the first two rakahs of the prayers, their prayer will still be regarded as valid.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
