بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Allah says in the Glorious Quran: That this is a Glorious Quran, inscribed in a well-guarded Book, which none can touch, except the purified. Quran[56:77-79]

Allah says in the Glorious Quran: They ask about the monthly periods (of the women). Say (O Prophet), “It is a state of impurity; so keep apart from the women during their monthly periods and do not go near them (sexual intercourse) until they are clean.” Quran [2:222]

According to most scholars, one who is physically impure (because of sex or menstruation) should not touch the Quran. This is based on the hadith narrated by ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allah be pleased with him), according to which the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to teach the Quran and he never prevented anyone from learning it except those who were in a state of impurity.

Ali narrated: "Allah's Messenger would recite the Qur'an in all conditions, as long as he was not Junub." At-Tirmidhi [Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 146]

The majority of scholars are of opinion that there is no harm in reciting Quran form one memory when one is impure. If one is student and needs to recite Quran from the Mushaf then one should not touch the Mushaf except with a barrier. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
