How to Perform the Forgetfulness Prostration

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: How does one perform the forgetfulness prostration?

Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

For the forgetfulness prostration (which is necessary if a necessary [wajib] action was left forgetfully, and for nothing else):

1. In the final sitting, recite the tashahhud;

2. Give one salam, to the right;

3. Perform two prostrations, with their sunnas;

4. Sit and repeat the final sitting, in full–reciting the tashahhud, sending blessings, and making supplication (dua); and then

5. End with two salams.

And Allah alone gives success.
