How to offer Sujud-ul-Tilawah

A: When one of Ayat-ul-Sujud (Qur’anic verses of Prostration) is recited, whether when offering Salah (Prayer) or outside it, it is Mustahab (desirable) for both the reciter and the listener to perform Sujud-ul-Tilawah. When offering it in Salah, the Takbir should be said when going to prostrate and when rising up from it, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to say Takbir whenever he went down or came up (during Salah) (Related by Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhy) If someone recites one of Ayat-ul-Sujud outside the Salah, it is Mustahab for them to say the Takbir when going to prostrate, but they are not permitted to say the Takbir when rising nor should they say the Taslim, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not do so.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
