What is Sajdah-e-Tilawah?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




Sajdah Tilawat is those 14 Ayahs in the Qur'an which makes sajdah necessary when it is read or heard in the prayer or outside the prayer.[1]


Even if the listener does not intend to listen to the verses, still it is wajib (compulsory) upon him to do the sajdah.[2]



Only Allah knows best
