Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

It is preferable that a person carries out all noble deeds from his right. In a narration of Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, Ayesha (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with her) has said,

حدثنا حفص بن عمر قال حدثنا شعبة قال أخبرني أشعث بن سليم قال سمعت أبي عن مسروق عن عائشة قالت  : كان النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم يعجبه التيمن في تنعله وترجله وطهوره وفي شأنه كله


“Nabi
صلي الله عليه وسلم loved his right when wearing shoes, combing, for his purification and in fact for all good.”

However, if a person is unable to write with his right hand he will be excused and it will be permissible for him to write the Quran with his hand.

 

And Allah knows best

Wassalaamu `alaykum
