Is it permissible to recite additional duas (prayers) from the verses of the Quran and hadiths in the last sitting of prayer after reciting the usual duas?

Dear Brother / Sister,
You can read duas from verses and hadiths after reciting Tahiyyat, Salli, Barik and Rabbana in the last sitting of a prayer. If you do so, the prayer will be valid and there is no need to perform sajdah as-sahw (prostration of forgetfulness).
Since the last sitting is the phase of praying at length in a prayer, postponing a wajib is not in question. (see. Ö. Nasuhi Bilmen, B. İlmihal, p.195).
However, reciting any prayer other than at-Tahiyyatu in the first sitting of prayer is not appropriate and this requires sajdah as-sahw.
