Doubting the number of sajdahs performed

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I was praying and I got doubts about how many sajdahs I did and I was doing first the Tashahhud and I determined that I would do one more sajdah in case and I was reciting “Assalaamu alayka ayyuhannabeyyu.. ” and around here or after “wa” I determined that I was going to do sajdah, but I added “wa Rahmatullaah” and then I stopped and proceeded to do sajdah (I did Sajdah-Sahw afterwards). But now I doubt that I did an “addition” that invalidates the salaah.


A: The Salaah is valid.

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