In Prayer, Do Surahs Have to Be Recited in Order?

17 November, 2020
Q In the first and second rakahs of prayer, we recite the Fatihah and another surah. Do the surahs we recite after the Fatihah have to in the correct order of the Quran?


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

In this fatwa:

During prayer, it is recommended not mandatory that the surah that we recite in the first rak`ah should precede the surah that we recite in the second rak`ah.
