The imaam forgot and stood up for a third rak’ah in Salaat al-Taraaweeh,then he sat down

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If an Imam in Salah Taraweeh forgot to sit down for tashahud in the 2nd rak'ah and get up straight (few seconds) but without utering AlFatiha and then get down to perform the tashahud. What must the Imam and the makmum do?

Praise be to Allaah.

They should all do sujood al-sahw for this extra action, which was standing up for a third rak’ah.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
