Undressing in a Room With Qur’anic Verses Hanging on the Walls

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas

Question: I would like to know what the correct etiquettes are regarding hanging verses of qur’an on the wall in a bedroom. For example, is it ok to have surahs or ayaat framed on a wall in my bedroom, as this also means that when I enter the room after showering and so on I would be changing and uncovering awrah in front of them, or facing by back to them etc. Would it be better to take them down?

Answer: assalamu `alaykum

Yes, there is no problem in undressing in a room where there is a Qur’an or verses of the Qur’an hanging on the walls.

However, it may be best to try and dress elsewhere, cover the Qur’an and its verses, or move them elsewhere, if possible without hardship or inconvenience, out of respect for the Book of Allah.

[Ibn `Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]
