f:346 -    Too many mistakes in 1 Salaat
Country : Spain,
Name : Musharraf
Question:     Mashallah, me and my friends have benefited greatly from your site.  I have a question: Is only Sajda Sahw Wajib even if we make more than 1 mistake in Salaat?

Answer:     Every mistake in Salaat does not make Sajda Sahw Compulsory (Wajib).  Leaving any Sunnah or Commendable (Mustahab) act does not make Sajda Sahw Compulsory.

However, missing out on any Compulsory (Wajib) act like reciting Surah Fatiha, or another Surah after it, Tashahud, etc. or distorting any Compulsory act, like reciting softly in a Salaat in which the recitation is to be in a loud voice, delaying an article of Salaat, like reciting more than the "At Tahiyyaat" in the first Qaida (sitting) of the Salaat, which in turn delays the 3rd Raka'at, preponing any article of Salaat, like performing Sajda before Ruku, repetition of an article of Salaat like performing 3 Sajdah in one Raka'at, in all these cases Sajda Sahw is Compulsory.  

If in a Salaat, more than 1 mistake, which make Sajda Sahw Compulsory occur, then only one Sajda Sahw will be enough for all.  Please keep in mind that as per the Hanafi school of Fiqh, the method of Sajda Sahw as described in the Hadith is that after reciting "At Tahiyyat," one Salaam should be done on the right side, then 2 Sajdah should be performed and then "At Tahiyyat," Durud Ibrahim and Dua Mathoora should be recited.  As given in Fatawa A'alamgiri, Vol. 1, Pg No. 126 and Pg No. 130

And Allah Most High knows best.
