AslaamoAliakam I have two questions First I want to know that is it mandatory to prostrate immediately when u recite the prostrate ayat in Quran or u may may offer prostrate latter. Secondly, whether the prostrate is mandatory when u only read the translation of Quran in any other language e.g urdu or english. JazakAllaha

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

1. You may offer prostration later as well. However, it is Makruh Tanzihi (unpreferable) to delay it because it is easy to forget to do it later.

وهي على التراخي) على المختار ويكره تأخيرها تنزيها)
الدرالمختار، باب سجود اتلاوة)٠)

(قوله تنزيها)
(لأنه بطول الزمان قد ينساها (رد المحتار

2. According to the Hanafi Fiqh, prostration will be Wajib (mandatory) after reading the translation of the Quran

See - qa.muftisays.com/?4255

And Allah knows best
