Basmala before next surah on Salah

Question:

What is the ruling of reading bismillah after Surah Fatiha and before the next Surah in Salah? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

It is neither sunnah nor disliked to recite Bismillah before the next surah, however, it is better to do so on the condition that one is reciting from the beginning of the Surah, e.g., reciting Bismillah before Surah Ikhlas.
