Extra duas in salah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Dear Respected Maulana Sahib,
My questions are regarding Namaz:

1:In Tashahhud after Reciting Durood Shareef, can we Read more than one Dua or does it have to be only one?

2. Can we Read the Extra Duas in Farz Namaz or Farz Namaz in Congregation for example “Allahumma Ba’id Baynee wa Bayna Khataya” at the start of Namaz. Or are These Duas only for Nafl Namaz?

1, Yes we are allowed to read more than one dua, but if that is in nawafil It would be desirable. The basis of faraaidh is upon takhfeef ie keeping them light and short. So in faraaidh, stick to what is narrated.

2, If in congregation and the imam has lengthened his dua, and one has finished his dua, then one could read extra duas.

Similar is the case with the beginning of namaz. Read in farz what is necessary and read the others in nawaafil.
