Home Q&A Salaah Repeating Surah Fatiha in Salaah

Q: If one repeats verses of Surah Fatiha in the Fardh Salaah, will it be necessary to make Sajdah Sahu?

A: If one repeats four Aayat or more of Surah Fatiha in the first two Rakaats of Salaah, then Sajdah Sahu will be obligatory as one has delayed in proceeding to fulfil the next mandatory act of Salaah. However, if one only repeats three Ayaat or less of Surah Fatiha, then Sajdah Sahu will not be necessary.
