Dear Mufti,


May Allah bless you and your team for creating such an source about islam and everything related to us. 


I have a clarification on sajdah. When we read Quran and when the sajdah ayah comes we have prostrate and my doubt is when I listen to surah sajdah, do I have to prostrate each time i hear to audio of surah sajdah?


No. sajdah tilawah is not necessary when the sajdah verse is heard over an audio or recording. However, if the sajdah verse is heard over a radio or receiver and the recitation is a live recitation, then sajdah tilawah is necessary.

And Allah knows best.
