Moving of the Quraan away from you when performing a sajdah

Question ID: 34046

Asalmualikum Mufti Elias

Can you please advise me of the correct method.

The following is my situation

I recite Quraan daily in the Masjid after Fajr Salaat until Ishraaq. My Quraan is placed on top of the reading bench provided in our Masjid whislt I m seated on the Musallah.

When I come across an Aayat of Sajdat Ut Tilawaah, I move the reading bench with the Quraan to one side and immediately perform the relevant Sajdah. Upon completion of the Sajdah, I draw the reading bench closer to me and continue with my recitation.

This morning just as I had completed a Sajdat Ut Tilawaah, one of the Musallees came to me to inform me that I should not move the reading bench away from myself but that I should leave the reading bench where it is and I should move away from it and then perform the Sajdah. According to him the manner in which I am doing this is showing disrespect to the Quraan (????)
Can you please advise me of the correct method please or is this merley a frivolous matter that was raised

I also wish to enquire whether I can leave the Quraan open on the page that refers to the Sajdat Ut Tilawaah whilst I perform that Sajdah.

Can you kindly respond to me by e-mail
