Should one read Bismillahir rahmanir rahim before each and every thing in namaz.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
Should one read Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim before everything in salah like before sana, Surah Fatiha, qirah, attahiyat, durood and dua in all the rakahs. Please answer in English.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 923/707/D=1434)

No, you should recite Sana after takbir tahrimah and then read اعوذ بالله من الشيطن الرجيم and then بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم i.e. read them before Surah Fatiha.
Do not read it before durood, dua or sana etc as it is not proved.

Clarification: However, if someone is muqtadi i.e. he is offering salah behind any imam then he should only read sana not اعوذ بالله من الشيطن الرجيم and بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم. (L)
