Sajdah Tilaawah during menses

Fatwaa ID: 2140

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
I listen to Quran recitation everyday. What should I do if I come across a Sajdah Tilawat while on my menses? Can I perform the sajdah or should I wait until I’m done and I’ve purified myself? What if I come across more than 1? Will I have to perform the sajdahs all together?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

There are two issues to your query: Sajdah Tilaawah verse from a recording and Sajdah Tilaawah during menses.

  1. If one hears a Sajdah verse from a recording, then that will not necessitate Sajdah Tilaawah. If one hears it from a live stream, then that would necessitate Sajdah Tilaawah.
  2. If a woman listens to a Sajdah verse while menstruating, then she does not have to perform any Sajdah Tilaawah now or later.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
