I would love to copy wholesale from the Albalagh site the description of sajdah-e-tilawat, but instead I’ve linked it: http://www.albalagh.net/kids/understanding_deen/sajdah_tilawat.shtml.

Reading/reciting Qur’an from/on iQuranPro on the Kindle is interesting – very very helpful in some regards, and then …..you come upon a sign and wonder. See http://quransmessage.com/articles/st%20FM3.htm for a discourse on the signage attached to the sajdah tilawat. So today I came across my first sajdah tilawat  on iQuranPro on the Kindle (PLEASE do not go rushing off to see how many juz I’ve completed or how many more I have to go – my sister-in-law has said [and I endorse it] that while there are guidelines/suggestions out there for the completion of Qur’an in 30 days by reading so many pages after each salaah each day, for women, we would have to cut down on the number of days, and double up for some days – she did the math, but since that was in pages, and since I haven’t figured out how to do pages calculation on iQuranPro it still doesn’t help me!). Insha Allah I will get around to tallying the verses in Al Qur’an and dividing by number of days – sounds like an Excel formula in the making.

Sajdah tilawat is the obligatory (wajib) sajdah which one must perform after reciting certain selected ayat of Al Qur’an –  14 or 15 selected ayat, depending on the school of thought. All 15 are  listed at http://www.beautifulislam.net/quran/sajda_tilawat.htm.
