Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

If the recitation is being relayed live, then one would have to make a sajdah, while if it is a recording, then a sajdah would not be obligatory.

Thus, listening to recitation over the Musjid receiver would make a sajdah obligatory, while listening to a cd would not.

As for the radio, recitation this is generally not live, but rather recordings are played. If it is live, then a Sajdah would be necessary.

It should be borne in mind that if while listening to a recording, one recites the ayah himself, then a sajdah would be necessary.
