Question:As salaamu alaykum,

I am a Shafii follower. When praying behind a Hanafi Imam performing the prostration of forgetfulness what should I do?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

If the imam performs the prostration of forgetfulness, the follower would do the same, and end the prayer when he does.

Please see:

And Allah alone knows best.
