Which verses and surahs should be recited in a prayer? Which surahs did the Prophet recite in prayers?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

While praying, it is necessary to recite verses and surahs which we know best. For, Abu Said said, "We are ordered to recite al-Fatiha and surahs which are easy for us"

In prayers, any part from the Qur'an can be recited. There should not be made any restrictions like reading certain verses.

In addition to this, there are hadiths about surahs which the Prophet (PBUH) recited in prayers.

For example, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said to Mu'adh b. Jabal, "Recite the following surahs: Wash-shamsi wa duhaha (91)", "Sabbih isma Rabbi ka-l-A'la" (87) and Wal-laili Idha yaghsha (92).

According to what Abu Barda narrated, The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) recited between sixty and a hundred verses in fajr (morning) prayers."

Abu Hurairah said, "I have never seen anyone whose prayer resembles that of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) than so-and-so. And Sulaiman bin Yasar said: I prayed behind that person; he would recite a long chapter in fajr prayer, a short chapter in maghrib prayer and a chapter of medium length in isha prayer."

In another hadith narrated from Jabir b. Samura, the following is stated: "The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) recited 'Qaf Wal Qur'anil Majid, and suchlike surahs. The prayers which he lead were light.
