Answer:

 

When can one do Sajdah Tilaawah?


In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: can it be done at the times when namaz is forbidden like after fajr,asr n isha prayers or is it allowed?

It is forbidden to pray salaat after the morning (fajr) prayer until the sun has completely risen to the length of a spear above the horizon, and when the sun is at its meridian until it moves sightly to the west, and after the afternoon (asr) prayer until the sun sets.

 

One may pray as many prayers as one wishes, after the magrib prayers until the fajr prayersthere is no restriction on prayers between magrib and fajr.

 

If one is reading the Quran, and comes to an aayah that requires sajdah-tilaawah, there is no harm if one does the prostration at any time, even after one has prayed the fajr or asr prayers. The only time one may postpone doing his sajdah-tilaawah, is when the sun is in the process of rising from the horizon until it has risen completely; or when the sun is at its exact zenith in the afternoon; and when the sun is in the process of setting into the horizon until it is completely set. It is preferred that one not do prostration at these times, but do it a little later after the sun has completely risen, moved west from its zenith, or completely set.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
