Observing Sura Order

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Sohail Hanif, SunniPath Academy Teacher

In salah if you recite a surah that comes earlier in the quran in the second raka, do you have to do sahu?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Reversing the order of the suras is prohibitively disliked only if done intentionally (f: and aware of the ruling), as mentioned by Ibn Abidinin his Hashiya

Even then, however, although one has sinned (f: if intentional), one isn’t expected to offer a prostration of forgetfulness because observing the order of the suras is of the necessary elements of reciting the Qur’an not of the prayer itself as mentioned in Bahr al-Ra’iq of Ibn Nujaym.

And Allah knows best.
