Is there a hadith about the necessity of reading the chapters of the Quran according to their order in the Quran?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The Prophet (pbuh) states the following:

"Pray as you have seen me praying." (Bukhari, Adhan 18)

The Prophet (pbuh) recited the chapters of the Quran based on their order in the Quran. It is unanimously agreed that it is makruh to read the chapters contrary to their order in the Quran.

For instance, it is makruh to read the chapter of "al-Ikhlas" in the first rak’ah and the chapter of "al-Lahab" or "al-Kafirun" in the second rak'ah. For, the narration reported from the Prophet (pbuh) is to read a chapter in the second rakah that comes after the one read in the first rak'ah.

The following is reported from Ibn Masud:

"When he was asked about a person who read the Quran reversely, he gave the following answer: ‘He is a person whose heart has been reversed." Abu Ubayda interpreted it as follows: A chapter is read; then, another chapter that is before that chapter in the Quran is read. (see Prof. Dr. Vehbe Zuhayli, İslam Fıkhı Ansiklopedisi)
