Salah (Prayers)

Salah ("worship", ‏صلاة‎; pl. ‏صلوات‎ ṣalawāt; also salat), or namāz (Persian: نَماز‎) in some languages, is one of the Five Pillars in the faith of Islam and an obligatory religious duty for every Muslim (Male & Female, with certain exemptions based on Taqwa). It is a physical, mental, and spiritual act of worship that is observed five times every day at prescribed times.

The matter of reciting Quran during Salah differs whether the Salah is obligatory or recommended. In the obligatory Prayer, we must recite Sura Al-Hamd and another full Sura. If we want to recite part of Sura, we can do so after reciting the full Sura as reciting Quranic verses during Salah is always permissible.

In recommended Salah, it is remissible to recite Sura Al-Hamd only and we are allowed to recite another full Sua or a part of Sura after Al-Hamd.

Wassalam.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

In our salah the whole surah must be recited and not parts of it which other sects do. For example you can recite Surah Al-Baqarah in your obligatory salah, but it must be in full. 

As for duas from the Quran in your qunut, reciting a part is ok

May Allah grant you success

Namaz Tahajjud can be performed either fully as 11 Rak'ats or shortly as three Rak'ats (2 Shaf' and one Witr) or in the shortest way which is just one Rak'at which is called Witr.

yes, it is allowed and it actually helps to better memorize more parts of the Qur'an. Imami ulama however do not allow during salat the recitation of verses that require an obligatory sajdah while other ulama do it by allowing the obligatory sajdah during the qiyam.

With prayers for your success.

there are ahadith stating that the prayer for the one who have consumed wine will not be accepted for forty days. There is no mention in those ahadith that his dhikr or du'a won't be accepted and actually it is said that such practices can accompany Muslims in all circumstances of life.

In the mentioned case, the person should also not forget to do istighfar and ask forgiveness for the sin that he committed. If he sincerely repents and has resolution of not committing the sin anymore,  Allah is certainly All-Forgiving.

With prayers for your success.

Hadith n. 312

312. Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said: Sometimes the hearts move forward and sometimes they move backward. When they move forward get them to perform the optionals (as well), but when they move backward keep them confined to obligatories only.

312. وقال علی عليه السلام : إِنَّ لِلْقُلُوبِ إقْبَالاً وَإِدْبَاراً فَإِذَا أَقْبَلَتْ فَاحْمِلُوهَا عَلَى النَّوَافِلِ، وَإذَا أَدْبَرَتْ فَاقْتَصِرُوا بِهَا عَلَى الْفَرَائِضِ.

Thank you for your question. Below is the ruling of Ayatullah Sistani (hA):

Ruling 978. Based on obligatory precaution, it is obligatory for a man to recite Surat al-Ḥamd and the other surah aloud (jahr) in ṣubḥ, maghrib, and ʿishāʾ prayers. And based on obligatory precaution, it is obligatory for a man and a woman to recite Surat al-Ḥamd and the other surah in ẓuhr, and ʿaṣr in a whisper (ikhfāt).

May you always be successful

Man is obliged to recite Sura Al-Hamd and other Sura in the first and second Rak'ats in Fajr, Maghrib and Isha Prayers with clear voice not whispering. It is not rising the voice like shouting but just reciting with clear voice. This rule is obligatory on males only not on females.

Wassalam.
