Q: I was praying the 2 rakaats of sunnah for the Esha salaah. After tashahud in the 2nd rakaat, I stood up and recited Bismillah and Surah Fatiha, whilst reciting I realised my mistake. What should you do in such a situation? It has happened to me before.
A: You may add one more rakaat and make it four.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
