Reading a missed ayah in the next rak’ah

Fatwaa ID: 1170

Assalamu Alaikum

Mufti Sahib I did something in salat and some musalee are confused about it.

I forgot to recite one ayat in my first Raka’t and then on my secound rakat I remembered it so I first recited that and then moved on to my secound Surah.

Obviously, it was valid, but like is this the Tarteeb.

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

Your salaah was valid. There was no need to read the missed ayah as you are not doing a khatam. At the same time, there is no problem if you do read it first and then read something else. However, when leading a congregation of laymen, it will be advisable not to read it as it may cause unnecessary confusion like in the enquired situation.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
