Downloading a Qur’an application on one’s phone

Q: Is it correct to download Quraan paak application on one’s mobile or some quraanic verses?


A: If one is sure that no disrespect will be shown to the Qur’an in any way, then one may download it. E.g. One will not download anything impermissible on the phone or view anything impermissible while one has the Qur’an downloaded. Similarly while one has the Qur’an on the screen, one will not touch the verses without wudhu. One will not take it into the toilet while the verses are appearing on the screen, etc. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
