Prayer of Ehtiyat/Sajadah-e-Sahv

A person for whom it is obligatory to offer Prayer of Ehtiyat should make the intention of such prayer immediately after Salam of prayers, without looking away from the Qibla or doing anything which invalidates the Prayers, do the Takbir and recite Surah al-Hamd and then perform the Ruuku, the two Sajdahs, Tashahhud and Salam. In case, however, it is obligatory for him to perform two units of Prayer of Ehtiyat, he should perform after the two Sajdahs, another unit like the first one and then recite Tashahhud and Salam.

Note: In Prayer of Ehtiyat there is no second surah or qonoot.


After the Salam of the prayer one should offer two sajdatus sahv for everyone of the following things:
  1. One has talked by mistake in Prayer
  2. One has left one Sajdahs by mistake
  3. One has forgotten Tashahhud by mistake
  4. One has recited Salam at the wrong place by mistake
  5. Has added or omitted by mistake any such thing which is not Rukn; or
  6. In the 4 Unit Prayer, after the second Sajdah one doubts whether it was the 4th or 5th unit.
How to do Sajdatus Sahv

Soon after finishing the Prayer, one immediately makes the intention and goes to Sajdah and recite " Bismillahe wa billahe Assalaamu alaika aiyuhan-Nabiyyu wa rahmatullahe wa barakatuh", and then one sits and perform the other Sajdah in the same way as the first one and sits and recite Tashahhud and Salam. (It is enough to say "Assalamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahe wa barakatuh for Salam.)

Note: If the Prayer of Ehtiyat is also to be performed it must be performed before Sajdatus Sahv.
