1. Does Sajdah Tilawat have to be commenced from a standing position or can it be done straight from a sitting position?
  2. When completing the Sajdah Tilwat does one have to stand up after the Sajdah or is it ok to complete the Sajdah by returning to the sitting position?



  1. Both are permissible.
  2. It is ok to just come back sitting.

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