Reciting the same surah in each rakah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Sohail Hanif, SunniPath Academy Teacher

During prayer, when you recite surah fatiha in each rakah, do you recite a different surah too or can you just recite the same surah in each rakah after surah fatiha?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu alaykum

It is somewhat disliked (makruh tanzihan) to repeat the same sura in consecutive rakats of an obligatory prayer. It is not disliked to do so in a supererogatory prayer. [Ibn Abidin]
