I was the imam for a Maghrib prayer and while reciting an ayah from al-Kahf I ended it with "Muslim" instead of "walam yaj'al lahu iwaja"

Then I asked my ma'mum to do Sujud Sahw, but they rejected the idea of doing so.

But I performed it anyway but am now afraid that I have sinned not only on my behalf but also of my ma'mum. Did I do the right thing? Have I sinned?

  • "Ma'mum" are those who are following (the imam in a prayer)

  • I'm not sure: But you didn't have to do sujud sahw as explained by Chlebta. But i guess your ma'mums did a sin as they have to follow you if you do sujud sahw! see also islam.stackexchange.com/questions/25189/…

If you make mistake in Sourat( NOT FATIHA) recitation you don't have to make sujid shaw because the sourat after Fatiha is Moustahaba not Rokn. Also take a look at this and this
