Salaat [necessary to recite a surah after al-fatiha?]
10/28/01 at 23:16:44
A brother and I were having a discussion about the performance of
Salaat.  The question I have is: Is it mandatory to recite a Surah following
Surah Fatiha in a rakaat?
I have heard people say that although reciting an additional Surat is
recommended, it is not a requirement for the validity of Salat.  In
other words, Surah Fatiha is what is only required.  Please assume, say for
example, a 4 rakaat Salat.

Please comment.

You're right.  The salaah is still complete and acceptable if no surah besides the Fatihah is recited.  However, it's highly, highly recommended and from the sunnah to recite something after the Fatihah.
