Answer

Allah Ta’ala says in an Aayat of the noble Qur’aan, ?And when the Qur’aan is being recited then listen attentively to it, and be silent so that mercy be shown on you.? (A?araaf Aayat204)

It is not correct for you to play the Qur’aan in such environment wherein people are involved in other works because this results in disrespect being shown towards Qur’aan. (Ma?ariful Qur’aan part4 pg.164). You should, therefore, play the Qur’aan in such a manner that only you can hear or may be you could possibly make use of earphones.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
