Answer

(Fatwa: 902/902/M=1432)

It is proved from hadith to recite Surah al-Fatiha in the last two rakah of fardh, however it is only better, not wajib. The companions of the holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) have ijma on it.
ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يقرأ في الأخريين بفاتحة الكتاب لا غير. (بخارى، ابوداؤد، مصنف ابن ابي شيبة). على و ابن مسعود رضى الله عنهما كانا يقولان : المصلى بالخيار فى الأخريين إن شاء قرأ وإن شاء سكت وإن شاء سبح ، وسال رجل عائشة رضى الله تعالى عنها عن قراءة الفاتحة فى الأخريين فقالت: “ليكن على وجه الثناء” ولم يرو عن غيرهم خلاف ذلك فيكون ذلك اجماعاً ولأن القراءة فى الأخريين ذكر يخافت بها على كل حال فلا تكون فرضا كثناء الافتتاح . (بدائع زكريا 1/295)
