Sajda-e-Sahw After Having Made The First Of The Final Salaam

Question

A person who has Sajdah Sahw remembers that he had to do one after making the first Salaam (before the second Salaam). What should he do in such a situation?

Answer

Sajdah-e-Sahw is generally made after making one Salaam to the right (having completed the recitation of Tashahhud/At-Tahiyyaat). In the enquired scenario, the person only remembered that he has to do Sajda-e-Sahw when he reached the final Salaam (prior to turning his head to the left for the second Salaam). Since he has made Salaam on one side (the right), he should now proceed with the Sajda-e-Sahw and thereafter complete his Salaah as normal. There is no need for him to perform another Sajda-e-Sahw or to repeat the Salaah. The Salaah will be valid and complete by following the above procedure.
