Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Sujood al-tilaawah is one prostration which the Muslim performs when he reads any of the verses of prostration, which are marked in the Mus-haf. 

The fuqaha’ are agreed that sujood al-tilaawah consists of one prostration. 

Al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah, 24/331.

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