Sunnah qiraat on Fridays

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1) On Friday mornings in Fajr Salaah (farz), the Imaams of the Musjid as well as the Musallis finds it difficult for surah-sajdah to be recited in the first rakaat, and then surah-dahr in the second. Therefore, by one Imaam (Zaid) spiltting up surah-sajdah in two rakaats on one Friday morning and then the other Imaam (Bakr) splitting up surah-dahr in two rakaats on the next Friday morning; will we still be fulfilling the Sunnah?

2) Is it Sunnah to recite Surah Jumuah on Friday mornings in Fajr Salaah? (farz)

3) Is it Sunnah to recite Surah A’laa and Surah Ghaashiyah on Friday mornings in Fajr Salaah? (Farz)



1. No.

2. No. This is sunnat in the Jumu`ah namaaz.

3. No.

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