Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: When reading a kitaab, like Fazaa’il-e-A`maal for example, one often comes across a single verse or several short verses of the Qur’an Shareef being quoted. (1) Before reciting such a verse, must one recite Ta’wuz and Tasmiyah? (2) Can one just read the English translation below the verse and not the actual Arabic verse itself?



1. It is better though not compulsory.

2. Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
