Answer:

 

Sajdah Tilawat Quran

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: WHAT IS THE WAY OF DOING SAJDAH OF QURAN


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.

Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.132a

Sunnah acts of prayer, The Opening Supplication

It is preferred for the person to begin his prayer with one of the supplications that the Prophet (saws) used to begin his prayers. This occurs after the opening takbir and before the recitation of al-Fatihah. Some of the supplications that have been related are:

1. Reported Abu Hurairah, "When the Prophet (saws) made the opening takbir for prayer, he (saws) would be quiet for a little while before his recitation. I asked him, 'O Messenger of Allah (saws), may my father and mother be sacrificed for you, why are you quiet between the (opening) takbir and your recitation? What do you say (at that time)?' He (saws) said, 'I say, O Allah, make the distance between me and my sins as far as you have made the distance between the East and the West. O Allah, cleanse me of my sins as a white garment is cleansed of dirt. O Allah, purify me from my sins by snow, rain and hail." (Related by al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, an-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah.)

2. Reported Ali, that when the Prophet (saws) stood for prayer, he (saws) would make the takbir and then say, "I have turned my face to the one who created the heavens and the earth as a sincere submissive (person), and I am not one of the polytheists. My prayers, my sacrifice, my life and my death are all for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. He has no partner. That is what I have been ordered and I am of those who submit. O Allah, you are the King and there is no Lord besides You. You are my Lord and I am Your slave. I have wronged my soul and You are aware of my sins, so forgive all of my sins. No one forgives sins save You. Guide me to the best character. No one can guide to the best of that save You. Turn me away from its evil, and no one can turn me from its evil save You. At your beck and call, all the good is in Your hands and evil is not to You. And I am for You and to You are the Blessings and the Exaltedness. I seek your forgiveness and return unto You." (Related by Ahmad, Muslim, at-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud and others.)

3. It is related from 'Umar that the Messenger of Allah (saws) used to say, after the beginning takbir, "Glory be to You, O Allah, and to You is the praise. Blessed is Your Name and Most High is Your honor. There is no Lord besides You." (Related by Muslim and Duaraqutni)

4. It is a preferred act for the one in prayer to seek refuge from the Shaytaan between his opening supplication and his Qur'anic recitation. Nafa' ibn Jubair reports that the Prophet (saws) is reported to have said, "O Allah, I seek refuge in you from the Shaytaan, the outcast." Said Ibn al-Mundhir, "It has been related from the Prophet (saws) that he would say, 'I seek refuge in Allah from the Shaytaan, the outcast' before reciting (the Surah Fatihah)."

 

It is considered preferable and a Sunnah to make a supplication and praise Allah Subhanah after the takbir and before the recitation of the Surah Al-Fatihah in the first rakah of ones prayer, regardless of whether the prayer is obligatory or voluntary.

 

If one joins a congregation in the middle of the prayers (2nd, 3rd, or 4th rakah), there is absolutely no harm if one wishes to make the supplication immediately after one has declared the takbir symbolizing the start of his prayer. The majority of the scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that the Messenger of Allah (saws) only recited a supplication and praise after the takbir in the first rakah of his prayers; thus it would be best and purest for the believers to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (saws) and recite the supplication only in their first rakah immediately after they have declared the takbir symbolizing their start of prayer.

 

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

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
