Qur’an: Reciting without Wudu

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

At work its easier for me to read the Quran on the internet as I am on the computer for 8 hrs.  I was wondering if it is permissible to read the Quran on the internet without wudu’?  I asked a local Shaykh and he implied that the obligation of having wudu’ is only when one is touching the Quran but not merely reading it without touching it.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

In general, it is permitted to recite the Qur’an without touching it when one is not in a state of minor ritual impurity.

It is superior, when reasonably possible, for one to do wudu.

In a state of major ritual impurity, it is not permitted to recite the Qur’an. [Ala’ al-Din Abidin, Gifts of Guidance]

Walaikum assalam,
Faraz Rabbani.
