Question
Option Of Basmalah for Surah at-Tawbah?

Assalaamu Alaykum,

I have heard that when starting recitation from Surah at-Tawbah, one can recite the basmalah with the intention of beginning general Qur'an recitation and not of it being part of the Surah. Could you please confirm if this is correct? JazakumAllahu khayr.

Answer
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,
The scholars have stated that it is not allowed to read the basmalah at the beginning of surah At-Tawbah.. They have made this a blanket statement and they did not give conditions about it, but instead gave a blanket statement that it is not allowed, so we should not read the basmalah at the beginning of it. 
The scholars have stated that we are allowed to read the basmalah when starting our reading in the middle of surah at-Tawbah.  This statement in itself should give us certainty that we should not read it when starting it, and Allah knows best.
Wa assalaam
