Observing the recitation of only some of the Legislated Supplications

Reference: Fataawa wa Rasaa.il Mukhtaarah – Pages 518-519

Question: Is it required for a person to recite all the [legislated] supplications of the evening and all the [legislated] supplications of the morning, or is it – for example – sufficient for him to recite a supplication or two for the evening and [likewise] for the morning?

Response: All of these [supplications] are from the Sunnah, and it is better for the Muslim to exert effort in [reciting] them all if he is able; Otherwise, he may suffice with some of them [as Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala says] and:

{Allaah burdens not a person beyond his scope}, [Soorah al-Baqarah, Aayah 286]

And with Allaah lies all success.

المحافظة على بعض الأذكار دون بعض

المرجع: فتاوى و رسائل مختارة – ص518-519

السؤال: هل الواجب على الإنسان أن يردد جميع أذكار المساء و جميع أذكار الصباح أو يجزئ الإنسان ذكراً واحداً أو ذكرين مثلاً للمساء و الصباح؟

الجواب: هذه كلها من باب السنن، و الأولى للمسلم المحافظة عليها جميعاً إن استطاع و إلا فعلى بعضها، {و لا يكلف الله نفسا إلا وسعها} – سورة البقرة 286.

و بالله التوفيق.
