Mistakenly standing up after the last sajdah of the last rakaat

Q: I mistakenly stood up after the last sajdah of the last rakaat of salaah. How should I proceed with the salaah to make it valid?

A: As long as you have not made the sajdah of the fifth rakaat you should return to the qa`dah and make sajdah sahw before completing the salaah.

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