1. There are fourteen places of Sajdah Tilawat in the Qur’an. Wherever the word “sajdah” appears on the margin of the Quran, then on reciting that verse, Sajdah becomes. This Sajdah is known as sajdal-e-tilaat
  2. The method of making Sajdah e Tilaawat is as follows the person should say Al Akbar and go into sajdah. When saying Allahu Akbar the hands should not be raised. While in Sajdah, he should say “SUBHAANA RABBIYAL-A’LA ” “سبحان ربي الاعلى” at least three times. Thereafter, he should say Allahu Akbar and raise his head. The sajdah is now complete.

3. It is preferable to stand up, say Allahu Akbar and go into Sajdah. And thereafter to say Allahu Akbar and stand up from the sajdah. It is also permissible to go into Sajdah and come up from it while in the sitting position without standing up at all

4. Sajdah-e-tilawat becomes wajib on the person who recites a verse of saydah and also on the person who hears it being recited. This is irrespective of whether the person had sat down with the intention of listening to the Quran, whether he was preoccupied with some work, or whether he heard it without intending to listen to it. It is therefore better to recite the verse of sajdah softly so that sajdah-e-tilawat does not become wajib on anyone else.

5. Those factors that are a prerequisite for salaat are also prerequisites for sajdah-e-tilawat. That is, the person must be in a state of wudu, the place must be clean, the body and clothing must be pure, sajdah must be made in the direction of the qiblah, etc. Sajdah-e-tilamat should be made in the same way as sajdah is made in salaat.

6. Some people make their sajdah on the Quran itself. Sajdah in this manner is not valid and one is not absolved from this wajib act.
