Delayed Sajda Tilaawat
Question: I have many Sajdatut-Tilaawats to complete still. Can I give Sadaqah on behalf of that, or will I have to make it up like Salah that’s qadha? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It will be necessary that you perform all of the sajdas of tilawat that were delayed. Paying sadaqah for the delayed sajdas is not an alternative. Generally, sajdas of tilawat become abundant when they are delayed. Therefore, we advise that you perform them as soon as possible after reciting or hearing an ayat of sajdah.
