In the Eid Salaah, the Imam forgot to perform the ruku after the extra takbirs in the second rakaat. However, while going for sajda the muqtadi corrected him, whereupon he returned, performed the ruku and then went for sajda. Then he performed a sajda sahw. Will this Salaah be in order? Is there any sajda sahw in the Eid Salaah?
Sajda Sahw is normally performed when a wajib act is forgetfully left out or performing such and act before or after it’s time.
In the above mentioned case, the Sajda Sahw has rectified the delay in ruku, but according to most Jurists, Sajda Sahw should not be performed in Eid Salaah. As such, the Salaah remains in order even if it was not performed.
With its performance as in the case above, the Salaah would still remain in order.
