Reciting aloud in silent salaahs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If in a silent prayer, during recitation of Surah al Fatiha, how much of it is recited loudly would require sajdah sahw ? Is it correct that according to Abu Hanifa if 1 ayaat is recited loudly it will require sajdah sahw, but according to Imamayn it is 3 ayaat? If one recites ”ihdina’s” and ”liiiin” loudly in salaah would this require sajdah sahw ? Also in the first two rakaats when Surah Fatiha and a additional surah are to be read, upto to how many recitation of it may be reacited loudly before sajdah sahw becomes due ?


A: The amount of three verses.

ومنها الجهر والإخفاء حتى لو جهر فيما يخافت أو خافت فيما يجهر وجب عليه سجود السهو واختلفوا في مقدار ما يجب به السهو منهما قيل يعتبر في الفصلين بقدر ما تجوز به الصلاة وهو الأصح ولا فرق بين الفاتحة وغيرها (الفتاوى الهندية 1/ 128)
