Qur'an Reading Tips: Sajda-e-Tilawat

Ramadan Mubarak,

As we further on this Ramadan journey, we should remember that reading as much as The Qur'an as possible should be one of our goals.  The reading schedule to complete The Qur'an is in the previous post, but we would like to add the verses below that require Sajda after reading them:

  1. Surah Al A'Raf (7) Ayat 206
  2. Surah Al Ra'd (13) Ayat 15
  3. Surah Al Nahl (16) Ayat 50
  4. Surah Bani Israil (17) Ayat 109
  5. Surah Maryum (19) Ayat 58
  6. Surah Al Haj (22) Ayat 18
  7. Surah Al Haj (22) Ayat 77 (Shafi)
  8. Surah Al Farqan (25) Ayat 60
  9. Surah Al Naml (27) Ayat 26
  10. Surah As Sajdah (32) Ayat 15
  11. Surah Sa'd (38) Ayat 24 (Hanafi)
  12. Surah Hamim Sajdah (41) Ayat 38
  13. Surah Al Najam (53) Ayat 62
  14. Surah Inshiqaq (84) Ayat 21
  15. Surah Al Alaq (96) Ayat 19


Sajda Tilaawat will be performed like a normal Sajda. Wudhu is a condition.

There is no Sajdah Tilaawat when the Aayat of Sajdah is heard on tape.

Face the Qiblah and without raising the hands, recite Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar), going down in the Sajda position. In Sajda, recite Subhaana rabbiyal a'alaa at least 3 times. Thereafter, reciting the Takbeer if you wish to. If you wish, you may arise from the Sajda position into the Tashahhud position. The Sajdah Tilaawat is now complete. There is no need for Salaam.
