Reading the Translation of the Prostration-Requiring Verses

Q.| Does reading the translation of the prostration-requiring verses[1] obligate one to perform a prostration?
A.| Reading the translation of these verses does not make performing a prostration (sujūd) obligatory.

[1] The prostration-requiring verses of the Qur’an (in Arabic āyāt al-ʻazāʼim and in Farsi āyāt sijdih) are those verses upon whose reading one must perform a prostration.  These verses are as follows: 32:15, 41:37, 53:62, and 96:19.
