Qiraat in Salaah

Q: I got two questions;

1. Do we need to recite anything while praying behind an Imam? Is it compulsory to read a surah?

2 When we reciting fathiha or a surah in a prayer, what if we do a mistake and we realize it at the moment, what shall we do? Example 01- When we reciting surah al naas and after recitng half we random come up with another verse of another surah like surah al quraysh. Example 02, when we reciting surah al nas half and what if we cant remember the other half ? Can we skip the surah?


1. No, it is not even mustahab.

2. Correct yourself when you realise.

Read another surah.

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