How to Identify Sajda in Quran?

Sajda in quran is the soujoud that a Muslim prostrates when reciting a verse of sajdah, whether it is in prayer or outside it, and it is called that because it is a special sajdah for reciting the Qur’an.  The legality of the sajda in quran is based on what was narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar – may Allah be pleased with them – that he said: (The Prophet, may Allah prayers and peace be upon him. Used to recite to us a surah, in which there is a sajdah, so he would prostrate and we would prostrate, until one of us could not find the place of his forehead). To learn properly get Online Quran Classes form Quran Spirit professional tutors for better learning about sajda.

And there is more than one method of sajda in quran reported by the jurists, which are as follows:

1- According to the Hanafis: They said that if the reciter is in prayer, he must have the intention, and the reader can either kneel immediately after reciting the sajdah verses in quran, and it is sufficient for the sajdah.

Or he completes the verse of prostration and prostrates immediately after it, then rises and completes the recitation, then kneels in the bowing prayer which is the most complete, and if more than one sajdah in one prayer, so one prostration is sufficient.

And that comes under the heading of removing embarrassment, and if the sajdah is outside the prayer, then he should say the takbeer and then the prostate, then he should say the takbeer until he raises his head from sajdah.

2- According to the Hanbalis: They said that the sajda in quran, whether it is in prayer or outside it, is how it is for the one who wants to prostrate to say two takbeers.

The first is if he soujoud and the second is if he is raised, and if he is outside the prayer, then the soujod is as the Hanafis mentioned, but with the addition of the salutation is obligatory.

3- According to the Shafi’is: Sajda in quran is first with the intention, then with the takbeer, and it is permissible to raise the hands for that, then prostration and after that the takbeer to raise it, then the salutation if it is outside the prayer.

4- According to the Malikis: Method is to say the takbeer for lowering the sajda in quran by raising the hands if outside the prayer, and then the takbeer when rising from it.

With the intention, whether it is in prayer or outside it, and there is no surrender to the sajda in quran as is the case with the Hanafis.

Are there 14 or 15 sajdah in Quran?

The majority believes that the number of sajdah verses in quran is fourteen, while the Malikis consider it eleven.


In conclusion, sajda in Quran after reciting one of the verses of sajdah is a confirmed Sunnah in prayer and elsewhere, and this is called the prostration of recitation, so the one who does not commit it is not sinful. For the validity of the sajdah in Quran, the purity that is required for the validity of the prayer, as well as the requirement to face the qiblah, to cover the private parts, and that the sajda in quran be one between two takbeers. And the congregation must follow his imam in doing and leaving it, and the sajda in quran is not valid unless these conditions are met, and there is another opinion that is not required To be a person.
