Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to recite the Quran from the computer without actually touching the Quran ?

Answered according to Shafi'i Fiqh by Darul Iftaa Jordan
Is it permissible for a menstruating woman to recite the Quran from the computer without actually touching the Quran ?

Answer:
It is not permissible for a woman in her menstrual period, or in postpartum to recite the Quran, even by heart, or without actually touching the Quran itself. Recitation itself is what is prohibited on her regardless of how it is done. However, it is permissible for her to surf through the Quran by her eyes, or to recall it in her head without uttering the words. There is no harm for her to look at the Quranic verses on the computer without touching it, or to utter the words as this is called looking not reciting or reading.
