Forgetting to sit after 2 rakaats in nafl salaah

Q: If I wanted to read 2 rakat of nafl salaah but after reading 2 rakats, without sitting, I get up accidentally, should I break my salah? If I sit for tashahud but forget doing salam and get up accidentally what should I do?

A: If you stood up for the 3rd rakaat then continue and finish 4 rakaats with sajdah sahw at the end.

Complete the 3rd and 4th rakaat as normal.

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