Sajdah sahw

13 Feb 2019 Ref-No#: 1332

Assalamu alaikum,
Do i need to do prostration for forgetfullness if i repeat one word of sanaa twice before surah fatiha and what if i recite the entire sanaa before fatiha?

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

You do not have to perform Sajda as-Sahwa (prostration of forgetfulness)  if you repeat a portion, or even the whole Thanaa forgetfully before Surah al-Fatiha. The Salah will be valid.
