Hello. Welcome to solsarin. This post is about “sajda in which para of quran“.


As-sajdah (السجدة), is the 32nd chapter (sūrah) of the Quran with 30 verses (āyāt). The name of the chapter has been translated as ۩ “Prostration” [1] or “Adoration”.[2] and is taken from the fifteenth verse, which mentions those who “… fall prostrate and hymn the praise of their Lord”.[1]

Regarding the timing and contextual background of the believed revelation, it is an earlier “Meccan surah“, which means it is believed revealed in Mecca, instead of later in Medina. Theodor Nöldeke (d.1930), translator of Tabari (Arabic – German), estimated it as the 70th (Nöldeke chronology).[3] The traditional Egyptian chronology puts the chapter as the 75th chapter by the order of revelation (after Quran 23).


The first half of the chapter covers some of Islam’s theological concepts, including revelation, God, creation of human beings, resurrection and the judgment day. The second half discusses the contrast between those who “fall prostrate” before God and those who “turn away” from God’s sign. The chapter then mentions the Children of Israel as an example of people who follow God’s guidance through Moses.[4]

How Many Sajdah In Quran?

Islam emphasizes believing in one God (ALLAH SWT), and He is only righteous of worshiping. Countless acts are considered Worship (Ibadat), but the nearest and greatest act to attain the concentration of ALLAH SWT is to do Sajdah (Prostration). It’s a primary weapon to decrease the influence of evil (Shaitaan).

All the Muslims in the world perform different acts to complete their Islamic Faith beyond all life matters. A Hadith can depict the importance of Sajdah e Tilawat. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “Once, a person prostrates himself after reading a verse requiring the performance of Sajdah, the shaitan starts crying and wailing in a corner, saying: ‘Alas! The children of Adam were enjoined to perform Sajdah, and they carried it out and became entitled to enter Paradise, but I refused to do so and was condemned to Hell.” (Muslim and Ibn Majah)

Sajdah & Sajdah Tilawat

Here we are going to explain two fundamental concepts, i.e., Sajdah and Sajdah Tilawat. If we define the former (Sajdah), it’s an Arabic term that means Adoration in front of ALLAH Almighty.

The latter (Sajdah Tilawat) means every time the word ‘Al-Sajdah or Sajdah’ emerges on the side border of the Quran while reciting it; Prostration becomes mandatory (Wajib). This Sajdah is called Sajdah Tilawat.

Verses of Adoration in the Quran

The total number of Ayah that seems to offer Sajda is fourteen. All the Ayah are in different Surah of Quran. Two of them are in the same Surah i.e. Surah Al-Hajj. Remaining are in Surah Al A’Raf, Surah Al Ra’d, Surah Al Nahl, Surah Bani-Israil, Surah Al Maryam, Surah Al Furqan, Surah Naml, Surah As-Sajdah, Surah S’ad, Surah Ha Mim, Surah Sajdah, Surah Al Najam, and Surah Inshiqaq.

Is Prostration Obligatory?

Prostration is requisite whenever Sajdah comes while reciting Quran. The following Hadith depicts it:

Abu Huraira (R.A) narrated that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: During recitation whenever a person outreach to the point of Sajdah Tilawat, and he performs prostration then the evil (shaitaan) shout and detaches himself from that person and howl, “O Disaster! When he was asked to do Sajdah, he did, thus for him there are the gardens in Jannah. But when I was instructed to do Sajdah, I did not do, and for me, there is hellfire”. (by Sahih Muslim)

How to pinpoint Sajdah Tilawat?

The symbols and written word can identify the point of Prostrating. Usually, this ۩ mark is used to mention Sajdah, and in typography, this word is written usually السجدہ or سجدہ.  It is also depicted in the following Images.

How to Perform Sajdah?

Suppose the point has reached where Sajdah e Tilawat is Wajib now. The person should stand straight, say ALLAH o AKBAR, bow down to ALLAH Almighty on his knees (remember do not raise your hands like in Salah). Furthermore, say سُبْحَانَ رَبِّيَ الأَعْلَى (Subhaana Rabbiyal-A’laa) minimum three times or any odd number greater than or equal to three. Then you can say ALLAHU AKBAR and uplift your head. Hence your Sajdah e Tilawat has been completed.

When is Sajdah e Tilawat necessary?

A person reciting the Quran or listening to the Quran if the point of adoration comes, then Sajdah is wajib on that person. Whether that person is doing a word, in the sitting position, is lying on his bed, traveling, or anything, he should do Sajdah Tilawat.

14 Verses (Ayah) of Prostration

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِهِ وَيُسَبِّحُونَهُ وَلَهُ يَسْجُدُونَ ۩

Translation: Those who are near to thy Lord disdain not to do Him worship: They celebrate His praises and prostrate before Him.

وَلِلَّهِ يَسْجُدُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ طَوْعًا وَكَرْهًا وَظِلَالُهُمْ بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآصَالِ ۩

Translation: Whatever beings there are in the heavens and the earth do prostrate themselves to Allah (Acknowledging subjection)- with good-will or in spite of themselves: so do their shadows in the morning and evenings.

أَتَىٰ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ فَلَا تَسْتَعْجِلُوهُ ۚ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

Translation: (Inevitable) cometh (to pass) the Command of Allah: seek ye not then to hasten it: Glory to Him, and far is He above having the partners they ascribe unto Him!

وَيَخِرُّونَ لِلْأَذْقَانِ يَبْكُونَ وَيَزِيدُهُمْ خُشُوعًا ۩

Translation: They fall down on their faces in tears, increasing their (earnest) humility.

وَإِذَا بُشِّرَ أَحَدُهُمْ بِالْأُنْثَىٰ ظَلَّ وَجْهُهُ مُسْوَدًّا وَهُوَ كَظِيمٌ

Translation: When news is brought to one of them, of (the birth of) a female (child), his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief!

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَسْجُدُ لَهُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَنْ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَالشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ وَالنُّجُومُ وَالْجِبَالُ وَالشَّجَرُ وَالدَّوَابُّ وَكَثِيرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ حَقَّ عَلَيْهِ الْعَذَابُ ۗ وَمَنْ يُهِنِ اللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ مُكْرِمٍ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاءُ ۩

Translation: Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens and on earth- the sun, the moon, the stars; the hills, the trees, the animals; and a great number among mankind? But a great number are (also) such as are fit for Punishment: and such as Allah shall disgrace,- None can raise to honor: for Allah carries out all that He wills.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ارْكَعُوا وَاسْجُدُوا وَاعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمْ وَافْعَلُوا الْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ ۩

Translation: O ye who believe! Bow down, prostrate yourselves, and adore your Lord; and do good; that ye may prosper.

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ اسْجُدُوا لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ قَالُوا وَمَا الرَّحْمَٰنُ أَنَسْجُدُ لِمَا تَأْمُرُنَا وَزَادَهُمْ نُفُورًا ۩

Translation: When it is said to them, “Prostrate to (Allah) Most Gracious!” they say, “And what is (Allah) Most Gracious? Shall we prostrate to that which thou commandest us?” And it increases their flight (from the Truth).

اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ ۩

Translation: Allah!- there is no god but He!- Lord of the Throne Supreme!

إِنَّمَا يُؤْمِنُ بِآيَاتِنَا الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِّرُوا بِهَا خَرُّوا سُجَّدًا وَسَبَّحُوا بِحَمْدِ رَبِّهِمْ وَهُمْ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ ۩

Translation: Only those believe in Our Signs, who, when they are recited to them, fall down in prostration, and celebrate the praises of their Lord, nor are they (ever) puffed up with pride.

قَالَ لَقَدْ ظَلَمَكَ بِسُؤَالِ نَعْجَتِكَ إِلَىٰ نِعَاجِهِ ۖ وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنَ الْخُلَطَاءِ لَيَبْغِي بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَقَلِيلٌ مَا هُمْ ۗ وَظَنَّ دَاوُودُ أَنَّمَا فَتَنَّاهُ فَاسْتَغْفَرَ رَبَّهُ وَخَرَّ رَاكِعًا وَأَنَابَ ۩

Translation: (David) said: “He has undoubtedly wronged thee in demanding thy (single) ewe to be added to his (flock of) ewes: truly many are the partners (in business) who wrong each other: Not so do those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and how few are they?”…and David gathered that We had tried him: he asked forgiveness of his Lord, fell down, bowing (in prostration), and turned (to Allah in repentance).

فَإِنِ اسْتَكْبَرُوا فَالَّذِينَ عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ يُسَبِّحُونَ لَهُ بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَهُمْ لَا يَسْأَمُونَ ۩

Translation: But are the (Unbelievers) are arrogant, (no matter): for in the presence of thy Lord are those who celebrate His praises by night and by day. And they never flag (nor feel themselves above it).

فَاسْجُدُوا لِلَّهِ وَاعْبُدُوا ۩

Translation: But fall ye down in prostration to Allah, and adore (Him)!
