Repeating Surah Faatiha in Salaah

Q: One read more than the half of surah al Fatiha in the 1st rakah, then doubts whether he recited the beginning part correctly. If he re-starts from the place he doubts (and thus repeats a half or more of the whole surah) does he need to do Sajdah Sahw? Thus does repeating a half or more due to a doubt whether one recited correctly or not necessitate sajdah sahw, or does sajdah sahw become waajib only if one forgetfully repeats a half or more?


A: If he is in doubt then he should repeat the verse that he is in doubt of and make sajdah-e-sahw.

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