Nasihah (Advice): The Importance of Amaanah (honouring trust)

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is no Imaan in the person who betrays a trust and there is no religion in the person who does not honour his promises” (Musnad Ahmed, Hadith #: 12567, Narrated by Anas)

Q. I received the question and answer from the Jamiat about Sajdah Sahw yesterday. I learn something new every day from this service. Can you tell me how to do Sajdah Sahw?

(Query published as received)

A. The method of performing Sajdatus Sahw is as follows:

You will complete your Salaah as normal upto the first Salaam. After making Salaam to the right, do not turn to the left to make the second Salaam; and instead, perform two Sajdahs and sit in Qa’dah (the position of Tashahhud). Thereafter, you will recite the Tashahhud, Salawaat, Dua before Salaam and then terminate the Salaah as normal with two Salaams (to the right and left). This is the procedure of Sajdatus Sahw. (al-Hidaya, Vol: 1, Pg: 74)

Q. Regarding the Q&A related to Sajdah Sahw, Is sajda sahw not perfprmed after tashahud and then after completing the two sajda, one would read tashahud,salawaat and dua and complete the salaah?

A. One may make Salaam immediately after the Tashahhud and perform Sajdatus Sahw or one may make Salaam and Sajdatus Sahw after reading Tashahhud, Salawaat and Dua. Both ways are correct and permissible. The latter method has been preferred by the compilers of al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah and the author of Ahsanul Fatawa. (Ahsanul Fatawa, Vol: 4, Pg: 31)
