Sajdah sahw

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

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?


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.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
