quote: Bismillaahi was Salaatu was Salaamu 'ala Rasoolillaah sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam. As Salaamu 'alaykum Is it permissible for a mudeer to recite only 1 ayah after al-faatihah? The mudeer recited Soorah al-Faatihah, and then recited 1 ayah from Soorah an-Nisaa(115). I was under the impression that there must be a minimum of 3 ayah recited, as the shortest soorah in al-Qur'aan is 3 ayah long. May Allaah bless you and increase us all in knowledge of the matters which are pleasing to Him and the ability to act upon them. Ameen.
