Does uttering basmala before the dua of at-Tahiyyatu invalidate the prayer or does this necessitate sajdah as-sahw (prostration of forgetfulness)?

Dear Brother / Sister,
Basmala is not uttered before the dua of at-Tahiyyatu. However, uttering basmala before this dua does not invalidate the prayer. Your previous prayers are valid, too.
Uttering Basmala before the dua of at-Tahiyyatu does not require sajdah as-sahw.
