Can we make sajdah sahw in a sunnah/nafl prayer?

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Can we make sajdah sahw in a sunnah/nafl prayer? Or must we pray the salaat again?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah

Forgetfulness prostrations are necessary (wajib) to perform for leaving any of the necessary (wajib) actions of the prayer forgetfully. It is not performed for anything else–whether deliberate omission of necessary actions, or the omission of sunna actions, or the performance of something disliked.

Jazakum Allah khayr.

And Allah alone gives success.
