Sajdah aayah which appears at the end of a surah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

As salaamu Alaykum Mufti Saheb
What is the ruling of a sajdah aayah which I s recited in salaah.. meaning if the aayat comes at the end of the surah. For instance Surah Alaq .. when is that sajdah made ?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

If you are praying alone and recite a verse of Sajda at the end of the Rak’ah, you will have two options:

  1. Either you proceed into Sajda, and when you come you may recite a verse or two from the next Surah (Surah al-Qadr – in your example), and then proceed into Ruku’
  2. Immediately after reciting the verse of Sajda, you go into Ruku’, but make the intention of Sajda at-Tilawah in the Ruku’.

Both of these options are correct, but the second option is better.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

لو لم يسجد وركع ونوى السجدة يجزيه قياسا وبه نأخذ…..ولو كانت بختم السورة فالأفضل أن يركع بها ولو سجد ولم يركع فلا بد من أن يقرأ شيئا من السورة الأخرى بعدما رفع رأسه من السجود ولو رفع ولم يقرأ شيئا وركع جاز  (الفتاوى الهندية (1/ 133)
