New Muslim Reciteing Surah Al-Fatihah and some Ayahs during Ruku` or Sujud instead of Tasbih! – Permanent Committee

Do not recite Surah Al-Fatihah during Ruku` or Sujud instead of Tasbih!

Q4: Is it permissible for a new Muslim to recite Surah Al-Fatihah and some Ayahs (Qur’anic verses) instead of the obligatory Tasbihs (glorifications of Allah) and Du`a’ (supplications) that are obligatory in Salah (Prayer) or is there anything else that can be said instead, because this is difficult at the beginning?

A: A new Muslim should recite the Qur’an and Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) in the correct places during Salah as soon as they can, as Allah says: Allâh burdens not a person beyond his scope. However, they should not recite Surah Al-Fatihah while in Ruku` (bowing) or Sujud (prostration) instead of Tasbih.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
