When performing 4 Rakaat Fardh of Salaah, you accidently get up for a fifth rakaat. I have heard you should then add another rakaat, making the total to 6, and it will count as nafl. My question is will all the rakaats then be counted as nafl, and you will have to pray your 4 fardh again, or will the 2 extra rakaats only count as nafl, and your 4 fardh would have been completed.


would it be same for 4 sunnat?

The additional two raka'at will be deemed nafl. The first four raka'at prayed will be considered fardh and it will not be necessary to repeat the salah.

The same rule applies to sunnah salah also.
