Quran, concept of Sujud at-Tilawah (the Prostration of Quran Recitation)

Sujud at-Tilawah (the Prostrations of Quran Recitation) 

It is Prostrations (a pair) while reading or listening quran when respective Verses come which contain prostration
 
 
 Why we do so 
  
Hadith‏ ‏‏

It was narrated from Ibn Abbas that:

The Prophet (ﷺ) prostrated in Sad and said: “Dawud did this prostration in repentance and we do it in thanksgiving.”

Sahih (Darussalam)

Sunan an-Nasa’i 958
In-book : Book 11, Hadith 82
 

* From the above Hadees it is clear that we should do so for thanksgiving for Almighty Allah (swt) and also it is Sunnah of Prophet Muhammed ﷺ
 
 Does it require wudu (abulution )

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

The Prophet (Muhammed ﷺ) prostrated while reciting An-Najm and with him prostrated the Muslims, the pagans, the jinns, and all human beings.
 
Reference
 : Sahih al-Bukhari 1071
In-book reference
 : Book 17, Hadith 5
 

* From the above Hadees it is clear that
Once The Prophet (Muhammed ﷺ) prostrated while reciting An-Najm and with him prostrated the Muslims, the pagans, the jinns, and all human beings.
 

Obviously at that time not all the people was with wuzu (abulution), therefore wazu or abulution is not mandatory for Sujud at-Tilawah (the Prostration of Quran Recitation)

Does Sujud at-Tilawah (the Prostrations of Quran Recitation) is compulsory or not
 
Narrated `Ata’ bin Yasar:
I asked Zaid bin Thabit about prostration on which he said that he had recited An-Najm before the Prophet, yet he (the Prophet) had not performed a prostration.
 
Reference
 : Sahih al-Bukhari 1072
In-book reference
 : Book 17, Hadith 6
 

 
Narrated Rabi`a:
`Umar bin Al-Khattab recited Surat-an-Nahl on a Friday on the pulpit and when he reached the verse of Sajda he got down from the pulpit and prostrated and the people also prostrated. The next Friday `Umar bin Al-Khattab recited the same Sura and when he reached the verse of Sajda he said, “O people! When we recite the verses of Sajda (during the sermon) whoever prostrates does the right thing, yet it is no sin for the one who does not prostrate.” And `Umar did not prostrate (that day). Added Ibn `Umar “Allah has not made the prostration of recitation compulsory but if we wish we can do it.”
 
Reference
 : Sahih al-Bukhari 1077
In-book reference
 : Book 17, Hadith 11
 

* From the above Hadees it is clear that Allah has not made prostration of recitation compulsory

 اللَّهُمَّ احْطُطْ عَنِّي بِهَا وِزْرًا وَاكْتُبْ لِي بِهَا أَجْرًا وَاجْعَلْهَا لِي عِنْدَكَ ذُخْرًا
 
 
Allahummah-tutanni biha wizran, waktub li biha ajran, waj’al-ha li “indaka dhukhran
 
(O Allah, reduce my burden of sin thereby, reward me for it and store it for me with You).’
 
Ibn Abbas said: “I saw the Prophet (ﷺ) recite (an Ayah of) prostration and then prostrate, and I heard him saying in his prostration something like that which the man had told him the tree said.”
