Is the second sajdah in Salaah also fardh?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I would like to ask, if I made one sajda only by mistake and forget the second one, is my prayer valid? I heard that the first sajda is fardh only and the other is mustahab.

Bismillaah

A: This is incorrect. Both sajdahs are fardh. Since you have left out a fardh of Salaah, the Salaah is not valid and will have to be repeated.

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