Reciting the same Surah in two rakaats

Q: During Salah, if one recited a particular Surah after Surah Al Fatiha in the first rak’ah (for example, one recited Surah Al Kauthar), and then in the second rak’ah, after reciting Surah Al Fatiha, one begins to recite Surah Al Kauthar and then realises that he has already recited this Surah in the first rak’ah, and so he immediately starts again by reciting a different Surah (for example, Surah Al Ikhlaas). Does this action require sajdah sahw, since he was reciting a particular Surah, then stopped, and started again by reciting a different Surah?


A: No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
