Masbooq forgetting to recite a Surah after Surah Faatiha

Q: What is the ruling for a masbooq who forgot to read a surah after surah fatiha but completed his namaz?

Bismillaah

A: If a masbooq while completing his Salaah after the Salaam of the Imaam forgot to recite the surah, then he should make sajda-e-sahw at the end of his Salaah. If he had forgotten to make the sajda-e-sahw at the end of the Salaah, then the Salaah will have to be repeated as long as the time of the Salaah does not elapse. If the time elapses, then the Salaah will not have to be repeated.

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