The Prophet (saw) recited various chapters and verses from the Qur'an in his prayers, depending on the specific prayer and the time of day. Here is a brief overview of some of the chapters and verses that the Prophet Muhammad recited in the five daily prayers:

  • Fajr (dawn) prayer: The Prophet (saw) typically recited the last two chapters of the Qur'an, Surah Al-Falaq and Surah An-Nas, in the Fajr prayer.

  • Dhuhr (noon) prayer: In the Dhuhr prayer, the Prophet typically recited Surah Al-Fatihah (the opening chapter of the Qur'an) and one or more additional chapters from the Qur'an. Some examples include Surah Al-Baqarah, Surah Aal-e-Imran, and Surah Al-Nisa.

  • Asr (afternoon) prayer: In the Asr prayer, the Prophet typically recited Surah Al-Fatihah and one or more additional chapters from the Qur'an. Some examples include Surah Al-Baqarah, Surah Aal-e-Imran, and Surah Al-Nisa.

  • Maghrib (sunset) prayer: In the Maghrib prayer, the Prophet typically recited Surah Al-Fatihah and one or more additional chapters from the Qur'an. Some examples include Surah Al-Baqarah, Surah Aal-e-Imran, and Surah Al-Nisa.

  • Isha (night) prayer: In the Isha prayer, the Prophet typically recited Surah Al-Fatihah and one or more additional chapters from the Qur'an. Some examples include Surah Al-Baqarah, Surah Aal-e-Imran, and Surah Al-Nisa.

It is important to note that the chapters and verses that the Prophet Muhammad recited in his prayers may vary depending on the source and the specific context.

Evidences

  • "The Prophet used to recite the following in the Isha prayer: 'Say: He is Allah, the One' and 'Say: O disbelievers'" (Sahih Bukhari).

  • "The Prophet used to recite the following in the Maghrib prayer: 'Say: He is Allah, the One' and 'Say: O disbelievers'" (Sahih Bukhari).

Misconceptions

  • Some believe that the chapters and verses that the Prophet (saw) recited in his prayers are fixed and must be recited by all Muslims in every prayer. However, it is important to note that the Prophet's (saw) recitations may have varied depending on the specific context and the time of day. .

  • Some argue the chapters and verses the Prophet (saw) recited in his prayers are the only ones that can be recited in the five daily prayers. However, Allah encourages reciting of various chapters and verses from the Qur'an in their prayers and does not fix any given set.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Prophet Muhammad recited various chapters and verses from the Qur'an in his prayers, depending on the specific prayer and the time of day. While the Prophet Muhammad's recitations may serve as a guideline for Muslims, it is important to note that Muslims are encouraged to recite various chapters and verses from the Qur'an in their prayers, as long as they are appropriate and in accordance with Islamic teachings.
