He did the first sajdah of sujood al-sahw (prostrations for forgetfulness in the prayer), then he remembered that he did not do anything that required sujood al-sahw

Question

He did the first sajdah of sujood al-sahw, then he remembered that he did not do anything that required sujood al-sahw. Should he do the second sajdah or not?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

 

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked this question, and he hesitated, then he replied:

 The best thing is for him to do the second sajdah, so as not to confuse people and give them cause to shout “Subhaan Allaah” [to draw his attention to his mistake] – that is, if he is the imaam. And Allaah knows best.
