Reciting surah iklaas in every rakaat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I like reciting Surah Ikhlaas, from hadith we know that if one recites Surah Ikhlaas 3 times it equivalent to recitation of one complete Quran. I wanted to know whether surah Ikhlaas could be read:

  1. In every rakath of Fardh salaat.
  2. In every rakath of Sunnath salaat.
  3. In every rakath of any nafil salaat
  4. In every rakath during taraweeh if missed with Jamath.
  5. In every rakath of Salatul Tauba, Salatul Thajjud, Witar and while offering the missed salaat.



A: It is not a recommended practice.

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من أحدث في أمرنا هذا ما ليس منه فهو رد (مشكاة رقم 140)

لا بأس أن يقرأ سورة ويعيدها في الثانية

قال الشامي في رد المحتار : قوله ( لا بأس أن يقرأ سورة إلخ ) أفاد أنه يكره تنزيها وعليه يحمل جزم القنية بالكراهة (رد المحتار 1/ 546)
