Qiraat in salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za


1. Is it compulsory to recite Tasmiyyah before Surah Fatiha in the 2nd, 3rd & 4th rakaats of Salaah.

2. If we mistakenly recite Surah Naas in the first rakaat of Salaah, how do we continue with the rest of Rakaats? Will Sajda-e-Sahw be compulsory?

3. If I mistakenly recite a Surah in the second rakaat which is earlier in order to what was recited in the first rakaat, should an additional latter Surah be recited if it is realised within the rakaat?



1. No

2. Recite Surah Naas in the rest of the rakaats. Sajdah Sahw will not be compulsory.

3. No.

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