Q: If a worshiper reads Surat Al-Fatiha and andSurat Al-Qader in the first Rakaa of the Magrib prayer instead of reading Surat Al-Fatiha and Surat Al-Ikhlas, is his prayer deemed valid? 

A: It is permissible to read any Surat of the Holy Quran after Al-Fatiha except Surats Al-Azaem that are Al-Alaq, An-Najim, and Fussilat, since it is better not to read these Surats in prayer.
