Q: Dear Mufti Saheb, In Tuhaftul Almai, pg.219 vol.2, is mnentioned that when making sajdah sahw according to Imam Abu Haneefah, the correct method is to recite all the duas first, then make salaam to the right, then 2 sajdas and then recite tashahhud only, then salaam. Is this the correct procedure. If not, then what is the correct one? Would be grateful if you mention some hawalas.


A: The correct procedure of making sajda sahw is that in the last qada one will only recite the tashahud and make one salaam. One will thereafter perform two sajdas, recite the tashahud, durood Ebrahim and dua and then one will complete the salaah by making both salaam’s.

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