Reciting Qur'an during Salah

Q: Is it permissible to recite only Al-Fatihah (Opening Chapter of the Qur'an) in Al-Sunan Al-Rawatib (supererogatory Salahs that were stressed and regularly performed by the Prophet) or should one perform them in the same manner as the obligatory Salahs?

A: It is legislated to recite after Al-Fatihah some other Surahs (Qur'anic chapters) or Ayahs (Qur'anic verses) when performing two or more supererogatory Rak`ahs (units of Prayer). However, reciting more Ayahs after Al-Fatihah is not obligatory; only reciting Al-Fatihah is obligatory.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
