Reciting Surah Mulk in salaah at night

Fatwaa ID: 2214

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ الله وَ بَرَكَاتُهُ

Dear Ustathah
Someone was asking

if daily surahs are recite in salatul Maghreb
Like Surah Mulk …etc
Does it still count for evening recitation ?

Or does one have to sit down and read from the Quran Kareem ?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The Ahaadith are general. They mention that Surah al-Mulk should be recited at night. One may recite it in salaah or out of salaah, from the mus-haf or from memory. As long as it is recited between the Maghrib and Fajr times, the virtues will be acquired.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
