Reciting the dua in jalsa before placing one’s hands on one’s thighs

Q: I was wondering if sajda sahw is necessary when one enters into jalsa and before putting his hands on his thighs, begins saying ‘allahuma aghfirlee wa arhamnee’, putting them on his hands during the recitation of the dua. Also, if the back is not completely straight during rukoo, then is the salah invalidated?



1. No.

2. No

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