Touching books which contain surahs of the Holy Quran

Touching books which contain surahs of the Holy Quran


 Answer:

If the book is such that it only contains surahs of the Holy Quran and nothing else then to touch the book without wudhu will be impermissible.   (Nizamul Fatawa p.25 v.1)

If the book contains explanations and commentary of the various surahs and is more than the verses of the Holy Quran then it is permissible to touch it without wudhu.  However, one should remember not to touch the part of the book where the verses of the Holy Quran are written.   (Ahsanul Fatawa p.27 v.2)

The translation of the Holy Quran holds the same ruling of the actual words of the Holy Quran.   (Imdadul Ahkaam p.243 v.1)
