Reciting Ayatul kursi in the state of janabat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can one recite quraanic ayats of duaa like ayatal kursi for protection in the state of janabat?


A: One can recite Aayatul Kursi and Dua’s for protection in the state of janaabat. However reciting Ayatul Kursi should be done with the intention of Dua and not with the intention of Qiraat (recitation of the Qur’an).

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.


( و ) يحرم به ( تلاوة قرآن ) ولو دون آية المختار ( بقصده ) فلو قصد الدعاء أو الثناء أو افتتاح أمر أو التعليم ولقن كلمة كلمة حل في الأصح حتى لو قصد بالفاتحة الثناء في الجنازة لم يكره … ( ك ) ما لا تكره ( أدعية ) (الدر المختار 1/172-174)
