Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

1) No, you cannot just make Sajda Sahw for any type of mistake. Rather, you will first have to establish what kind of error it is.

If you missed out a Fardh action, intentionally or unintentionally, the Salah breaks and cannot be remedied with Sajda Sahw.

However, if a person unintentionally delays a Fardh or Wajib action or if he unintentionally changes the sequence of a Fardh or Wajib act, he may make Sajda Sahw, and his Salah will be correct. Similarly, if one unintentionally leaves out a Wajib act, he may rectify his prayer by performing Sajda Sahw.

If a person makes a mistake or omits a Sunnah or Mustahab (preferable) action of Salah, then his Salah will still be correct, and he does not have to perform Sajda Sahw.

 

2) You do not have to repeat those prayers where you done Sajda Sahw for no reason.
