Question

We know that the Qur’aan is sacred and none may touch it except those who are purified. What is your opinion concerning touching tapes on which Qur’aan is recorded, by either men or women if they are in a state of janaabah (impurity as a result of sexual activity) or by women if they are menstruating? Is it permissible for them to touch or carry a tape on which Qur’aan is recorded?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with a person who is in a state of janaabah etc. carrying or touching a tape on which Qur’aan is recorded.
