If I look at youtube, an imam may recite a surah X from ayah a to b, or surah Y from ayah c to d during a salat. For example Al Baqarah from ayah 153 - 158, Humazah from ayah 1 - 9, or Ash Shu'ara from ayah 86 - 104, etc. Where do we learn this ? How do we know that we can recite Al Baqarah 153 - 158, and not 157 - 159, or 151 - 155 ? If I look at either the quran.com or quranwbw.com, there is no symbol whatsoever that indicate it.

In salah you first recite Surah al-Fatihah. After that technically you can recite any other surah or any verses from any surah. There are guidelines in the madhabs on which surahs\verses are recommended (al-mufassal), or for the length of recitation (such as 1-3 verses), or for reciting verses in-order and reciting such that the meaning is completed. However there are no restrictions on which verses from the Quran can be recited.

فاقرءوا ما تيسر من القرآن

So recite what is easy [for you] of the Qur'an.

Quran 73:20

  • Thanks @UmH for your answer. If I understand correctly, Al Baqarah from ayah 153 - 158, Humazah from ayah 1 - 9, or Ash Shu'ara from ayah 86 - 104, etc, is a division / breakdown within that respective surah. Unfortunately that division / breakdown is not visible on quran.com or quranwbw.com. Is there any site which shows that division / breakdown ?
