Reciting the Surahs in order in Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Sana Khan​


Is there any special requirement for reciting more than one Surah in a single salat?

Eg is it necessary to read-only consecutive Surahs eg Surah Al-Asr and then Surah Al-Humaza and not Surah Al-Asr and Surah An-Nas.

Am I right in thinking that the usual requirement that when one Surah is recited then the next Surah should come after that eg when Surah An Nasr next Surah has to be one of Massad, Ikhlas, Falaq or Nas and not anyone before Nasr eg Ar-Rahman

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful 


It is Sunnah to recite Surahs in accordance with their order in the Qur’an.
