Being intimate in a room wherein an aayah of the Qur’an is hung on the wall

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it khilaaful adab when couples make sex in a bedroom where an ayaat of the quraan is hanging on the wall in the same bedroom? Please note that the ayaat is written as an calligraphy on a canvas. I also want to know that is calligraphy of the aayahs of quran are khilaaful adab as well?



1. It is better to cover the Aayah.

2. It is permissible.

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