During periods can women touch the Quran?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Allah mentions in the Quran: “None can touch it but the purified.” (Surah al Waqiah, ayah 77)

During periods one is not allowed to touch the Quran just as is the ruling for one who doesn’t have wudhu. However, one may use a separate cloth or bag to touch the Quran as long as it (the cloth/glove) is not connected directly to the body.[1]

Only Allah knows best
