There are 15 sajdas in Quran, as comes in this Hadith:
Narrated Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet () taught me fifteen prostrations
while reciting the Qur'an, including three in al-Mufassal and two in
Surah al-Hajj. Abu Dawud said: Abu al-Darda' has reported eleven
prostrations from the Prophet (), but chain of this tradition is weak.
The only material we pray on is mud that is pure and clean. We don't pray on clay to "worship it", haply we pray on it because it is considered as a pure material, and as all Muslims — Shi'a and Sunni — believe that one must be clean and in a clean environment to pray.
I once asked my Sunni friend: "Why do you Sunni people pray with your shoes ...
بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
First of all, it would be considered as a constructive and helpful issue to know that Shiite school of thought doesn’t believe that they should prostrate solely on the stone. In fact the belief of Shiite is that they should prostrate on the things which are counted as a part of the earth. Meanwhile, it can be significant to note that ...
I will be mentioning the view of the Shia and Sunni in his answer
Why don't Sunnis pray on a stone made from clay ?
Sunni don't use a stone (Muhr) as the shia because there is no authentic hadith from the prophet (PBUH) which say we should only pray on a stone. On the contrary, Praying on Mud/Clay only contradicts the verses that claim Islam is not ...

1 - In sajda we must say "سبحان ربي الأعلى" (subhana rabia al a'ala) once at least, that is wajib (mandatory) in each sajda and it's sufficient. The second, the third time and more than that are mustahab or sunnah. After that you can make dua as you like and in each sajda you want not only in the last one. And this Du'a is Mustahab because The ...
The question how much sajdas or sajdat there are is different according to the Madhabs about the number and the terms! But most of the Madhabs say it is sunna and not a fard (farz).
Insha-Allah i will give at first an Answer about the terms of each of the sunni madhabs, then the number of sajadat they count and at least tell you the locations of all theses ...
Yes it is permissible to do sajdah (sizdah) without offering salah (prayer). It must be in the direction of qibla if known. Otherwise if direction of qibla is not known, your can perform it but keeping in mind that qibla is in upfront of you and God is up watching. And Allah knows the best.
You do a Takbeer and then go down into sajdah, and then you get up without saying a takbeer and there is no Tasleem, unless you are in salat when you would say a takbeer when you go down into it and come up.
When in the Sujood, you can say:
سبحان ربي الأعلى
Glory be to my Lord Most High, glory be to my Lord Most High
Also, the Dua' you say in the Sujood is:...
In rukoo', you can say the following:
Listen to the audio of the du'a here
In Sujood, you can say the following:

Regarding supplicating using verses from Qur'an, there is no objection for this provided one should not intend the recitation of the Quran, rather he should intend supplicating Allaah.
Rukoo' and sujud is ...
As far as I know, the narrations have not mentioned regarding its necessarily to Sajdah just if you hear it attentively. Actually there must not be any difference between hearing or reciting it attentively or carelessly.
According to the fatwas of religious scholars (Maraje’ of Taqlid) it is mandatory for people to Sajdah if they hear or recite any of those ...

First of all, i should tell at first look i didn't like your question, but than i thaught i think it is good if someone has desire to have one because quran says:
محمد رسول الله والذين معه اشداء على الكفار رحماء بينهم تراهم ركعا سجدا
يبتغون فضلا من الله ورضوانا سيماهم في وجوههم من اثر السجود ذلك مثلهم
في التوراة ومثلهم ...
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most merciful
First of all, I should mention that on the whole, Sajdeh (prostration) can be considered from different aspects, and one of those aspects is related to “pronunciation” as you mentioned.
As a general Islamic rule of Salah (prayer), there are some conditions which can invalidate your Salah (prayer). ...
All praise to Allah (Swt) and blessings on Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him, His family and Companions)
Abu Qatadah narrated that:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to Abu Bakr: "I passed by you while you were reciting and your voice was low." He said: "I let He who, I was consulting hear." He said: "Raise your voice." Then he said to Umar: "I passed ...
Sajdas (plural in rabic are sujoud) exist in some AYAT where god talk about soujoud like in ayat ANAHL/49 "And for God Prostrate What in heaven and on earth.."
When we say them in salah or while we are reading Quran we do Sujud. Note that this is not mandatory but it preferred to do it beacuse there is THAWAB in doing it
for example the prophet says : "If ...
From all of the discussions I've had regarding prostration, I've concluded the following =
There's no sufficient evidence from Quran and Sunnah explicitly saying prostration is an act of worship in of itself.
If prostration was worship, every Muslim would be worshiping the thing in front of them. There would be no Muslims left on earth.
The angels would've ...
IF anyone makes any claim, then he has to bring its proof that if it is present in Quran or Hadith. During my study of islam, i never came across anything like that.
Also, you should note one thing that not every question deserves or needs an answer. i mean in this case, the MAIN motive of Salah is to worship Allah and those actions have to be according to ...
explains that he made a niyat (mental intention) that the regular sajdah will be sufficient for the ayat of sajdah
Yes, that's permissible. See, for example, QIBLA.COM: Sajdah Tilawa, Qada Salat:
If you recite a verse of prostration as the imam or if praying alone, you should prostrate at the end of the verse, come back up, recite a few more verses, and ...
