The Details of the Question

- Can we read verses 51 and 52 of the chapter of al-Qalam in prayers as additional verses?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The following is stated in the Quran "... read ye, therefore, of the Qur'an as much as may be easy for you..." (al-Muzzammil, 73/20)

Accordingly, a person can read any chapter or verses after the chapter of al-Fatiha. Thus, we can read verses 51 and 52 of the chapter of al-Qalam.

According to Hanafis, it is wajib to read a short chapter or one or more verses from the Quran after al-Fatiha in the first two rak’ahs of fard prayers and all rak’ahs of other prayers; it is sunnah according to other madhhabs.
