Is it haraam to recite a Surah after Surah Fatiha in the 4th rakat or is it just not needed(necessary).

Is the prayer of a person valid who (out of ignorance) recites two surahs (fatiha and some other) in the 4th rakat ?

you should only recite surah Fatiah in 3rd and fourth razat or you could do zikr in 3rd and 4th rakat instead of reciting surah Fatiah.



951. Some of the obligatory acts of prayers are elemental (Rukn). Hence, a person who does not offer them, whether intentionally or by mistake, his prayers become void. Some other obligatory acts of prayers are not elemental. Therefore, if they are omitted by mistake, the prayers does not become void.
The elementals of Namaz are five: Intention (Niyyat) Takbiratul Ehram Standing before the Ruku' Ruku' Two Sajdah in every Rak'at.
Any addition made to these elemental (Rukni) acts, intentionally, will render the prayers void. If the addition is done by mistake, the prayers does not become void except when a Ruku' is added, or more than two Sajdah are offered in one Rak'at.
