Keeping the Qur’an in the bedroom

Q: We have a baby on the way. And we’re arranging a room where we have our Mushaf and Islamic books at the moment. I am looking for a place for these now, but it’s difficult because other people in the house watch loud TV and I wouldn’t want to place the books where music can be heard. Could we keep them in our bedroom even though we’d have intercourse there and have our soiled clothes and bedsheets in the same room as well? What about keeping them in the baby’s room even though the baby would wet and soil it’s nappies in there?


A: Yes, however, keep it covered in a respectable place.

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

وَمَن يُعَظِّمْ شَعَائِرَ اللَّـهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِن تَقْوَى الْقُلُوبِ ﴿الحج: ٣٢﴾
