Reciting two surahs in the incorrect sequence in one rakaat

Q: Is it allowed to recite two surahs which are not in correct order in one rakah?

A: Do not recite two Surahs in one rakaat of a Fardh Salaah. As far as Nafl or Sunnah Salaah is concerned, you may recite two Surahs or more in one rakaat. However the both Surahs should be recited in the correct sequence (whether the second Surah comes immediately after the first Surah or not). However, if the second Surah comes before the first Surah, it will be makrooh.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
