Reading & Looking at Qur’an During Menstruation

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to read from / recite the Qur’an from an online source or from her computer? This would not entail touching the mushaf, and would allow her the benefit to read/recite while menstruating, especially in Ramadan.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

It is permitted to read the Qur’an without touching it (e.g. by looking at it, such as from a computer screen), though not to recite it, when menstruating.

Note, too, that there is great merit in listening to the Qur’an being recited.

Walaikum assalam,
Faraz Rabbani.
