Making sajdah sahw in every namaaz

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: In almost every salah I tend to think that I skipped something that I need to do sajda sahw for, but I believe it is not correct everytime. No matter how much I tend to focus and not do sajda sahw, I think that I skipped this out or that. What is the ruling in such a case?


A: Until you are not sure don’t ever do sajdah sahw.

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

ولا يجب السجود إلا بترك واجب أو تأخيره أو تأخير ركن أو تقديمه أو تكراره أو تغيير واجب بأن يجهر فيما يخافت وفي الحقيقة وجوبه بشيء واحد وهو ترك الواجب، كذا في الكافي (الفتاوى الهندية 1/126)

باب سجود السهو … (يجب بعد سلام واحد عن يمينه فقط) … (سجدتان) … (بترك) متعلق بيجب (واجب) مما مر في صفة الصلاة (سهوا) فلا سجود في العمد (الدر المختار 2/77-80)
