Making sajdah sahw after realizing one's mistake in salaah

Q: I had missed one rakah in Isha jama'at. When I was offering the missed rakah, I forgot to recite a surah after al faatihah. I realised this and made Sejdah Sahw in the end. Should I repeat my prayer.

A: No, you do not have to repeat the salaah. The salaah is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
