Ruling 1201

A person on whom ṣalāt al‐iḥtiyāṭ is obligatory must make the intention of performing ṣalāt al‐iḥtiyāṭ immediately after the salām of the prayer; he must then say takbīr, recite Sūrat al-Ḥamd, and perform rukūʿ and two sajdahs. If one rakʿah of ṣalāt al‐iḥtiyāṭ is obligatory on him, then after performing the two sajdahs he must say tashahhud and the salām. If two rakʿahs of ṣalāt al‐iḥtiyāṭ are obligatory on him, then after performing the two sajdahs he must perform another rakʿah in the same way as the first, and after tashahhud he must say the salām.
