Reciting Qur’an while driving

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I read in seeratun Nabi that the worst person is he who reads the Quran without attention. I usually read three paras a day whilst driving, but most of the time my attention deviates. Should I read less and try to focus more? Will I be punished rather than receive reward for all the recitation without attention?


A: It is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
