Reciting a Surah after Surah Faatiha in the 3rd and 4th rakaat

Q: Should we recite any Surah after Surah Faatiha in the 3rd and 4th rakaat of Sunnat Ghair Muaqqadah, Sunnat Muaqqadah and Farz Salaah?

Bismillaah

A: In Sunnat-e-muakkadah and ghair muakkadah Salaah it is compulsory for one to recite a Surah after Surah Faatiha in all four rakaats. However in fardh Salaah in the third and forth rakaat, one will not recite a Surah after Surah Faatiha.

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