Is Sajdah tilawah compulsory upon a person who hears the ayah of sajdah over the CD, Mobile?

 

1)If we are listening to recording of Quran over the FM,CD, Cell phone etc. and if sajda ayah comes, do we have to perform sajda??

2) In another scenario if we are listening to someone live over FM , not a recording, and then if sajda ayah comes, do we have to perform sajd tilawah??

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

1)     Sajdah Tilāwah will not be performed when listening to an Āyah being recited in a recording.[1]

2)     Sajdah Tilāwah will be performed when listening to a live recitation via FM, satellite, etc.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
