Is skipping a sura bad if non-deliberate?

Answered by Sidi Salman Younas

I know that skipping a surah in the middle isnt good. But if i read surah “qulho wallaho ahad” in the first rak’ah and surah falaq in the second, not deliberately, is it bad since i didnt read surah naas?

I pray you are well.

What is disliked is to intentionally skip a surah inbetween two others or to recite in reverse order as stated in the Nur al Idah and other texts. There is nothing wrong in performing the recitation in the way you have described, [F: particularly if non-deliberate or occasional or in nafl prayers].

And Allah Knows Best
