Removing the Qur’an from one’s pocket before entering the toilet

Q: Regarding a person having a small Quran in his top kurtha pocket, and whether going into the toilet would be permissible if:

1) The kurtha pocket is open?

2) There is a single press stud /button on the pocket leaving some portion slightly open?

3) The pocket is zipped closed, or has a flap over it and a button?

4) There is another pocket hidden behind the front pocket, which can be accessed by opening the chest buttons and putting ones hand inside behind the front pocket. This pocket doesn’t have a button etc. Would keeping the Quran there and entering the toilet be permissible?


A: Remove the Qur’an before entering the toilet.

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