These are correct

Do your legs hurt? ("do" agrees with your legs, which is in the plural)

Does your leg hurt?("does" agrees with your leg, which is in the singular)

and

RubenAre your books stolen?Do/does your books stolen? (this is wrong)But i used our.So how ? Is it " Are our books are stolen ? "

My book is stolen. (Is my book stolen?)

Our books are stolen. (Are our books stolen?)
why i cannot say " Are your legs hurt "or " Is your leh hurt " ?.Why you use Do and why another sentence you use Are ?
Rubenwhy i cannot say " Are your legs hurt "or " Is your leh hurt " ?.Why you use Do and why another sentence you use Are ?

"Hurt" can be a verb in which case "do/does is used but it can also be an adjective in which case "is/are" is used.

With "stolen" only is/are works.

Of course, you can say something like

Someone has stolen my books. ("has stolen" is the past perfect of the vetb "to steal)

I suggest you read something about English tenses first as this should be rather easy to understand.

Can i say " Do your books lost ".I am using the verb lost.You only said that Do/Does used with verb.Another example is " Do our books stole by someone " ?

No.
The verb is lose. The past of lose is lost.

Here are some sentences:
Present tense:
I lose my books often.
You lose your books often.
Do you lose your books often?

I lost my books today.

Did you lose your books today?

You only said that Do/Does used with verb.Another example is " Do our books stole by someone " ?

No. The verb is steal, not stole. Stole is the past of steal.

Does someone steal our books?

When you use the helping verb do, always use the base form of the main verb. The tense is present when you use do/does, and past when you use did.
