Missed tashahhud in the third rak’ah of Maghrib

Fatwaa ID: 640

السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُم وَ رَحْمَةُ الله ِ و َ بَرَكَاتُهُ

Mufti sahab,
My son was leading my husband and my other son for Maghreb salah. He forgot to sit for tashahud in the third (last) rakah and got up. He then continued to pray a fourth rakah and sat down for At tahiyyaat and then led them into sajdah sahw and then salam.

Did he fix the mistake or should they all redo their Maghreb fardh salah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. In the enquired situation, the salaah must be repeated.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
