Listening to audio recitation of Quran with its translation

Q: As per your last message received, pictures of Makkah and Madina is not allowed to view in Islam. My question is I hear audio recitation of Quran
with its translation. Is that allowed in Islam?


A: This is permissible. The prohibition mentioned in the Hadith relates to making or viewing pictures of animate objects. 

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