Salaamu Alaykum
There is a statement of sahaba
(Ibn Hazm) where he clearly
said that, in Qur'aan there are
14 places of prostration .
Is it true that Imam Shafi has
introduced or added one more
"Sujood at-Tilaawah" in Surah-
al-Hajj which made total 15
places of prostration in the
Qur'aan .
Is this not innovation (Bid'ah ?(
Jazaak ALLAHu Khair.


All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
The statement that the number
of prostrations for the
recitation of the Quran are 15 is
the most preponderant opinion
of the scholars . The
evidence for this is that ‘Amr
ibn Al-‘Aas, may Allah be
pleased with him, said that the
Prophet taught him 15
prostrations for the recitation
of the Quran, among which are
3 in Al-Mufassal and two in
Surah Al-Hajj [Quran, 22]. [Abu
Daawood, Al-Haakim, Ibn
Maajah and Al-Munthiri]

Therefore, this is the most
preponderant opinion and not
an innovated statement. In
addition to this, if a scholar is
of a particular opinion in a Fiqh
issue, then his view should not
be said to be an innovation
even if it was not the
preponderant opinion.
Besides, we do not know what
you mean by your statement
“there is a statement of Sahaba
(Ibn Hazm)…”, if you mean that
he (Ibn Hazm) was of the view
that the number of prostrations
for the recitation of the Quran
is 14 based on statements of
some Companions, then it is
acceptable to say this, but if you
mean that he is a Companion –
and we do not think that you
mean this – then Ibn Hazm is
absolutely not a Companion and
not a Taabi’i, and not even from
the generation that followed the
Taabi’is as he came a long time
after that generation.

Allah Knows best.
