Reciting the Quran on a phone whilst having periods

18 Dec 2019 Ref-No#: 2272

Can a person read the Quran on their periods, through their phone?

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said,

لاَ تَقْرَأِ الحَائِضُ، وَلاَ الجُنُبُ شَيْئًا مِنَ القُرْآنِ

A woman who is experiencing her periods and a person who is in the state of janābat (major impurity) should not recite anything from Qur’ān.” (Sunan at-Tirmidhi)

Hence, it is not permissible for a female to recite the Quran whilst going through her menses. The same ruling applies whether she recites from the actual Quran, or whether she recites from a phone or tablet. In all cases, it will be impermissible.

She should rather recite the Kalimah, Istighfaar, Durud etc.
