Prostration of Recital from a Recording

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Does one have to perform sajdah for every time an ayah is heard, for e.g. on a mp3 player consisting of sajdah tilawah?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are well, insha’Allah.

No, you do not have to prostrate after hearing a verse of prostration from a recording. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]

The condition of its being obligatory is a live recitation.

Reciting a Verse of Prostration

It is obligatory for the one upon whom the prayer is obligatory to prostrate after reciting a verse of prostration. This is with the condition that they did so whilst awake.

The prayer is obligatory for the morally responsible Muslim (not including women who are in a state of menstruation or post-natal bleeding).

Hearing a Verse of Prostration

It is also obligatory for the one upon whom the prayer is obligatory to prostrate after hearing a verse of prostration from anybody, except: [1] a non-discerning child, [2] an insane person, [3] a sleeping person, [4] in the form of an echo, and [5] from a parrot, or the like.

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,

Tabraze Azam
