Is it permissible for a person who performs Salah (Prayer) to recite Bismillah-ir-Rahman ir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful) after reciting Surah Al-Fatihah, then follow this by another Surah (Qur'anic chapter) during Salah (Prayer)? Should it be recited out loud or secretly?
If the person praying is going to recite another Surah after Al-Fatihah, they should first silently recite Basmalah (Bismillah-ir-Rahman ir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful). However, if they are to recite a part of the middle or the last part of a Surah, they may not recite Basmalah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
