Ruling on standing up to do sajdat al-tilaawah

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
If a person is reading Qur’aan sitting down in the mosque or elsewhere, and he reaches an ayah where a sajdah is prescribed, is it better for him to stand up to do the sajdah, or should he prostrate from his sitting position? Which is better?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

We know of no evidence (daleel) to suggest that he should stand up in order to do sajdat al-tilaawah.

And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

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.
