Can one read only the portion of Surah known in Salat?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Is it permissble to read the Surah up to where one knows in salat?

my friend has a question .. Her Mum knows all of surha Yahsin instaed of that 2-3 raqoo she was wondering if it is permissble to read the surha up to where she knows in salat? Jazak Allah khair. Your respectable team are helping all of us alot.


In the name of Allah the Most Merciful

Yes, it is permissible to read the Surah upto where one knows. (Shami vol 1, Al-Hidayaah Vol 1)

“Recite that from the Quran which is easy for you” (Surah Muzammil, Verse 20)

In esteem of the Ayah above it is good that one reads Surah in the Salaah which one has memorized and will find comfortable to read, as this will help revise the Surah and one will be able to learn more thereafter, Inshallah.

Lastly, it is important to know that the order in which one recites the Surah’s of the Quran in Salaah is important. I.e. the order in which the Surah’s are presented in the Quran must be adhered to.

And Allah Taa’la knows best
