Making sajda-e-tilaawat at the wrong aayat in Salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1) A person thought of a sajdah Ayat in his head without reciting it with his lips. Does sajdah-e-tilaawat become wajib?

2) A person mistakenly made a sajdah-e-tilaawat in salaah at the wrong aayat of Quran. Does sajda-e-sahw become wajib?



1. No.

2. If the sajdah-e-tilaawat was done within three aayats from the aayat of sajdah then sajdah-e-sahw will not be necessary.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
