Sajdah Sahw For Error in Qiraat


What necessitates sajda sahw if made during Qira’āt of Salaah (Fardh, Sunnah, Nafl)?


Sajda-e-Sahw is not performed to rectify an error of Qiraat in Salaah. Generally Sajda-e-Sahw suffices for unintentionally omitting a Waajib, delaying a Fardh or Waajib act, increasing or decreasing in Salaah, etc. hence an error of Qiraat will not necessitate Sajda-e-Sahw. Yes however, if while engaged in Qiraat, a person (due to thinking of what to recite next) keeps quiet for the duration of one Rukn (duration of three Tasbeehs), then Sajda-e-Sahw will have to be made.

ويجب ( سجدتان ) لأنه صلى الله عليه و سلم سجد سجدتين للسهو وهو جالس بعد التسليم وعمل به الأكابر من الصحابة والتابعين ( بتشهد وتسليم ) لما ذكرنا ويأتي فيه بالصلاة على النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم والدعاء على المختار ( لترك واجب ) أو زيادة أو نقص لما روينا والمتعمد لا يستحق إلا التغليظ بإعادة صلاته لجبر خللها ( وإن تكرر ) بالإجماع كترك الفاتحة والاطمئنان في الركوع والسجود والجلوس الأول وتأخير القيام للثالثة بزيادة قدر أداء ركن ولو ساكنا (مراقي الفلاح ص 250)
