Can I Recite the Daily Recommended Surahs in Separate Sittings Without Loosing the Reward?
Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,
Can I recite some of Surah Yasin whilst travelling to the mosque for Fajr and then the rest whilst I travel back?
Would I still receive the reward for reciting Surah Yasin at Fajr time?
Can I recite some of Surah al Waqi’ah after Asr, then interact with my family and then complete it before Magrib enters?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,
I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.
Yes, this would be fine as there is some level of leeway in such matters. However, a complete recitation in a single sitting, when reasonably possible, would be superior.
Please also see: Does Reciting Surah Al-Mulk and Al-Waqi`ah During a Prayer Fulfill the Virtue of Reciting These Chapters in the Evening? and: Can I Recite Surah Al-Waqi’ah and Mulk During the Day to Have the Reward From Reciting Them By Night?
And Allah alone knows best.
