Reciting Surah Faatihah after Tashahhud

Q:

1. Reciting faatihah after tashahhud in second rakaat of a four rakaat salaah. Do I need to do sajda-e-sahw?

2. Reciting tashahhud after faatihah needs sajda-e-sahw?

A: 1. Yes.

2. If you are referring to reading Surah Faatihah in the qiyaam position and following it with tashahhud then sajdah sahw is compulsory.

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