Answered by Shaykh Rami Nsour
Question: I want inquire if Sujood during recitation of Qur’an is compulsory also during salat in the Maliki School. If I recite a verse that requires sujood in salat, will I offer the sujood and continue with my recitation?
Answer: According to the Maliki school, the prostration of recitation (sajda tilawa) is considered a sunna, not obligatory, if one is praying a recommended (nafila) prayer. It is disliked (makruh) to recite a verse of prostration during an obligatory prayer.
