If There’s Constantly Music in My Office Can I Recite Quran?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed Bin Mohamed Umarji


If there’s constantly music in my office can I recite Quran?

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


It will be permissible to recite Quran in this situation, though it would be advisable to wear noise-cancelling headphones if possible. InshaAllah the recital of the Quran will be a means of barakah and guidance for the people in the office.

There is a principle in Islamic Jurisprudence that states “Difficulty will bring about ease”1.

In ideal circumstances, it would be recommended to recite The Quran in a conducive environment. Having said that since the music in the office is something out of your control the rules are relaxed.

Only Allah knows best
