Missing an aayah in salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: While reciting qiraat in salaah, I missed the third aayah of Surah Naas (Ila hinnaas). The remainder of the surah was completed.

1) Should I have made a Sajdah e Sahw?

2) If Sajdah e Sahw was necessary, but was not made, should the salaah be repeated?


A: The salaah is valid. Sajdah e sahw was not compulsory.

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