Question: Assalam alaikum,

1. What is the minimum number of verses which need to be recited in a voluntary prayer?

2. If by mistake Surah al-Nas is recited in the first cycle of a 2 cycles prayer then which Surah should I recite in the second cycle?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

(1) The minimum number of verses which need to be recited in the voluntary prayers is three, just like the obligatory prayer, or one long verse which is the extent of three short verses.

(2) You should recite Surah al-Nas again in the second cycle (rak`at).

And Allah knows best.

wassalam,

Tabraze Azam
