Prostrations of Forgetfulness

Topic/Issue:1854 - Description of the prostrations of forgetfulness
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Abu HanifaWhen they are after the salutation, the person should recite the tasahud and offer the salutation.
Imam ShafiHe should recite the tasahud alone, and the salutations of the prayer is the salutation for the prostrations.
Imam Malik,Imam AhmadIf the person is prostrating after the salutation he is to recite the tashahhud, but if he is prostrating prior to the salutation he is not to recite the tashahhud
The reason for this disagreement stems from their dispute over is the authenticity of what has been reported about it in the tradition of Ibn Masud, that is, that the Prophet (Gods peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Recite the tashahhud and then offer the salutation "
