Question

please list the quranic verses that needs sujud or how many of quranic verses which needs sujud

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We have already published Fatwa 131947 clarifying that the number of the prostration verses in the Quran are 15 according to the most preponderant opinion of the scholars  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them. Indeed, Sayyid Saabiq  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him mentioned them in detail in his book “Fiqh As-Sunnah” and they are as follows:

1- Al-A’raaf [Quran 7] verse 206

2- Ar-Ra’d [Quran 13] verse 15

3- An-Nahl [Quran 16] verse 49

4- Al-Israa’ [Quran 17] verse 107

5- Maryam [Quran 19] verse 58

6- Al-Hajj [Quran 22] verse 18

7- Al-Hajj [Quran 22] verse 77

8- Al-Furqaan [Quran 25] verse 60

9- An-Naml [Quran 27] verse 25

10- As-Sajdah [Quran 32] verse 15

11- Sad [Quran 38] verse 24

12- Fussilat [Quran 41] verse 37

13- An-Najm [Quran 53] verse 62

14- Al-Inshiqaaq [Quran 84] verse 21

Allaah Knows best.
