Wudhu for Translation of Quran

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Do I need to have wudu to read the English translation of the Qur’an?

Answer: There is a difference of opinion in the Hanafi school.

The stronger and more precautionary position is that it is obligatory to be in a state of ritual purity to touch even a translation of the Qur’an.

Yet according to a more expansive position, it is permitted to touch a translation of the Qur’an without being in a state of ritual purity.

The way of mindfulness (taqwa) and thus resultant veneration (ta`dhim) is clear. Allah Most High says, “Whoever honours God’s symbols shows the piety of their hearts.” [22.32]
