Can I listen to Quran audio from phone while I am in menstruation?

Can I turn it on by myself?



In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind


According to the Ḥanafī madhhab, a menstruating woman may not recite the Qur’ān (al-Hidāyah, 1/33). However, there is nothing wrong with turning on and listening to Qur’ān audio. In fact, listening to the Qur’ān and contemplating its meanings would be considered desirable and rewarding.


Only Allah knows best
