f:673 -    What to do if 1 Sajda is missed in Salaat
Country : Aasmangadh, Hyderabad,
Name : submittername
Question:     If the Imam misses one Sajda, then will he have to perform 3 Sajda in the next Raka'at?
Answer:     In every Raka’at, 2 Sajda are Fardh (obligatory) and are the articles of the Salaat.  If any Fardh is delayed in the Salaat, then the Sajda Sahw (prostration on forgetfulness) becomes Wajib (compulsory) and if any Fardh is missed, then the Salaat is rendered invalid and should be offered again.

If any person performs only 1 Sajda in a Raka’at and goes for the next Raka’at, then if he/she remembers it in the next Raka’at, he/she should perform it before the Tashahud (At Tahiyyaat) i.e. he/she should offer 3 Sajda and should also perform the Sajda Sahw for delaying the Fardh.

If he/she remembers it after reciting the Tashahud, then he/she should perform 1 Sajda and should perform Sajda Sahw.

If he/she remembers it on ending the Salaat and has not turned the face away from the Qiblah and has not performed any other act, which breaks the Salaat then he/she should perform it then and also perform Sajda Sahw.  As given in Fatawa A’alamgiri, Vol. 1, Kitab Us Salaat.

And Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) knows best.
