Q: Is it sinful to not want to listen to the Quran right before an exam because you fear that listening to it might cause you to forget some of the stuff you are trying to memorize for the exam? Would it take one outside of Islam to think that the Quran could cause any sort of harm? Obviously, harm can only occur with the permission of Allah, but I mean thinking that the reason for the harm could be the Quran?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
