Listening to the Quraan Majeed while studying

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to know if I can listen to the Quraan-e-Kareem via handsfree while studying or before sleeping as I live in a hostel and there used to be a lot of noise. Before that, I used to listen to music but now I know that music is haraam and the devil’s Quraan. Therefore, I want to quit listening to music but please advise me if I can listen to the Quraan while studing and before sleeping via handsfree?


A: Preferably listen to the Quraan Shareef when you are not occupied in your studies etc.

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