Is sajdah as-sahw (prostration of forgetfulness) necessary if someone reads surah of al-Fatiha instead of at-Tahiyyat by mistake in the first or last sitting of prayer?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

If surah of al-Fatiha is read in the first tasahhud, it is necessary to perform sajdah as-sahw.

If surah of al-Fatiha is recited in the last tasahhud, it is also necessary to perform sajdah as-sahw. Performing sajdah as-sahw becomes necessary for the person who reads surah of al-Fatiha in tasahhud at first and then at-tahiyyat. If he/she sits in the length of tasahhud and reads at tahiyyat and then al-Fatiha, nothing is required. (al-Muhit / Radiyuddin Sarakhsi; Celal Yıldırım, Kaynaklarıyla İslam Fıkhı, 1/420-421)
