Sajdah-Tul-Tilaawah

asalamu alaikum mai aap se ye janah chahta hoon ke sajdae tilawat mai sajdah mai kya padna chahyee.

Answer:



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

The brother has only asked for, what to recite in prostration, but i want to clerify more things about this.

if a believer recites the Quran and comes across a sajdah aayah, and he/she is in a position and place where they can perform the sajdah immediately; they should stop reciting the Quran and bow down in prostration to the Lord of the Worlds.


The way to do an Islamic sajdah is to prostrate oneself on the ground in the direction of the Qiblah, whereby one's knees, toes, palms, and forehead touch the ground. In sajdah, one may glorify Allah just as one glorifies Him in the sajdah while praying, and say, "Subhanah Rabbi Al-A'ala".


Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 2.40 Whoever recites a "'Verse of prostration (sajdah)" or hears a "Verse of prostration" from the Holy Quran, should stop the recitation, face the qiblah, pronounce the 'takbir', prostrate, then make the takbir again, and rise from the prostration. This prostration is known in Islamic Jurisprudence as 'sajdah-tul-tilaawah' or 'the prostration of recital'. Naf'i relates that Ibn 'Umar said: "The Prophet (saws) would recite the Qur'an to us and when he (saws) came to an ''ayyah of sajdah,' he would make the takbir and go into sajdah and we would (also) make the sajdah." This is related by Abu Dawud, al-Baihaqi, and al-Hakim.


The difference between sajdah-tilaawah and the sajdah of prayer is that in the sajdah-tilaawah there is no rukooh before the sajdah, nor tasleem after the sajdah.

But, when prophet mohammad(pbuh) was on the pulpit, or on a vehicle (camel, horse, donkey, etc.), and when during the recitation of the Holy Quran, he (saws) came across one of the sajdah aayahs, he would continue or complete his sermon or his ride, and would perform the sajdah later. And Allah knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
