Assalamu Alaikum

I have questions about sajda-e-tilawat. If I memorize the verse which the word sajda is written and I have to recite so many many time until this verse is in my memory, so how many time should I prostate? Like yesterday, after I recited Sajda verse again and again, I prostated again and again.How about if I didn't complete reciting the sajda verse and i started to recite it again. So, i should only prostate once, right?Also, it is essential to a person, who hears the sajda verse, to prostate, right? If that person hears the sajda verse from somewhere, but he/she doesn't know it is the sajda verse, so is it sinful if he/she doesn't prostate?
Could you tell me about prayer while a person is in airplane, please. Like my sister will go to Thailand on this tuesday, so she has to be in the airplane for 20 or 22 hours. So, what should she do? It is very early in the morning in here, but I think it is in the
afternoon or in the evening of your local time plz reply me soon.

Dear sister in Islam

Dear sister! Your question has two sub-questions(1) Sajdah Tilawat, and (2) Prayer(Salah) in the Aero-plane. Answers of both are given below separately:

(1) Sajdah Tilawat:

If the same verse of Sajdah Tilawat is recited repeatedly in the same sitting, only one Sajdah Tilawat is Wajib and sufficient.
Yes, if the same verse of Sajdah is repeated in different sittings, Sajdah will be Wajib as many times as the number of sittings.If different verses of Sajdah are recited then also Sajdah will be Wajib as many as the number of verses of Sajdah recited. (Fatawa Rahimiah v.1,p.244,245)
In your case, you need not do Sajdah more than once if you memorise or recite the same verse of Sajdah at the same place.

(2) Salah (prayer) in Aero-plane

The person flying in an aero-plane has to perform Salah (Prayer) within time in the plane, and is not allowed to leave Salah. Yes, he has to re-perform it later on. (Fatawa Rahimiah V.4 P.303)

Thanking You
