Procedure to perform Sajda Sahu (forgetfulness prostration) in Salah

It is narrated by Sayyidina Abdullah ibn Ja'far (RA) that the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said: “Anyone who has doubt in his prayer should make two prostrations (sajood) after giving the salutation.” Sahu means forgetfulness. If you unintentionally commit a mistake in Waajib of Salah then you can rectify this mistake by performing Sajda Sahu (the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu)s (sajood)). If you commit a mistake which is not included in Wajib acts of the prayer then, just seek forgiveness from Allah. There is no need to perform forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu)s (sajood). Your prayers will Insha'Allah be valid and no rectification will be needed.



Rules regarding Sajda Sahu in Islam

  • If one or many of the wajib acts of Salah is omitted unintentionally then it becomes wajib to make the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu). By performing the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu), the prayer becomes valid. If one does not perform it, he has to repeat the prayer. Recommended: 14 Wajib Acts during Salah omission of which requires Sajda Sahu
  • If one forgetfully leaves an act which is obligatory and a fardh act of prayer, then prayer will not become valid by performing the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu). One must repeat it. Recommended: 6 Fard Acts during Salah omission of which invalidates the Salah
  • The forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) become wajib if a person does any mistake unintentionally. But if a person intentionally omits anything and done those mistakes then the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) won’t become wajib. And he has to repeat his prayer. Even if doing the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) doesn’t make any difference, the prayer will still be invalid
Procedure to perform Sajda Sahu (forgetfulness prostration) in Salah

  • In the last Rakaat of Salah when you sit for Qaa’dah Akheerah to finish the Prayer, recite Tashahudd till At-Tahiyaat. In case if you send darood and make dua after At-Tahiyaat even though you can perform sajda Sahu.
  • Then make a single Salam to the right side
  • After that you have to perform two consecutive additional prostrations (sajood). Recite the same verse for the Sajda as you recite in regular prayer. There is no difference in the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu).
  • Then recite At-Tahiyaat, Darood upon Prophet Mohammad (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and make Dua.
  • At the end, like a regular prayer finish your Salah by making Salam on both sides.
  • If a person makes another omission after the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu), then the first forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) will be sufficiet and there is no need to necessary to make another.
  • If numerous mistakes happen in prayer, which make the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) wajib, then there is only single forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) for all the several things. Only one Sajda Sahu will be sufficient for all the mistakes. It is not made more than once in a prayer.
  • A person unintentionally makes a mistake in his Salah which makes the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) wajib on him. But at the end of the prayer, he just forgot to make it and concluded his prayer by making salaam on both sides. Still he should make the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) if he is remain sitting the same place neither he turns away from the qiblah, nor he did anything which breaks the prayer breaks.
  • The forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) was become wajib on a person due to his any mistake but if he intentionally conclude his prayer without making the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu). Despite this, the option to make the Sajda Sahu is still there on a condition that he does not do anything to make the prayer void.
  • The forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) become wajib if a person does any mistake unintentionally. But if a person intentionally omits anything and done those mistakes then the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) won’t become wajib. And he has to repeat his prayer. Even if doing the forgetfulness prostration (sajda Sahu) doesn’t make any difference, the prayer will still be invalid
  • Important Note: In this post I have just explained the Procedure to perform Sajda Sahu (forgetfulness prostration) in Salah according to Hanafi point of view. It does not mean that other procedures to perform Sajda Sahu are not correct. You can continue to follow the procedure you have been following. But it is also important to research on it to determine that you have been following it correctly.
