Mistakenly making one salaam after two rakaats in a four rakaat Salaah

Q: I am just a bit confused about this question that once I made niyyat of reading four rakaats but I made salam after two rakaats an just as I made salam I remembered so I stood up and completed my other two rakaats. So now was my Salaah accepted or do I have to make Qadha for that Salaah. Please advise.


A: The namaaz is valid.

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