(Fatwa: 131/125=J)


If sajdah-e-tilawat is already obligatory on somebody, he can perform them any time except these three times (since they are makrooh time): (1) At the time of sunrise (2) at midday (3) at sunset. But, if he has recited the verse of sajdah at these times then he is recommended to offer the sajdah right at the same time even if it is makrooh time. (Hashiah Imdadul Fatawa: 1/558)


(2) There is no wrong in offering the sajdah whether he is a Hanafi or a Shafei, but during salah if a Hanafi recites a verse of sajdah according to Imam Shafei then he will not offer sajdah-e-tilawat there. (Imdadul Fatawa: 1/556)
