Wear hijab when reading Quran

In the context of the discussion, provide a detailed answer to this question: Do you have to wear hijab when reading the Quran ..?

A woman doesn’t need to wear a hijab to read the Qur’an, as there is no evidence to suggest that it is.

It is not necessary to cover one’s head when reciting the Qur’an, according to Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen.

“Sujood al-tilaawah is to be done when reading Qur’an,” Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen remarked in his remarks on sujood al-tilaawah (prostration necessary when reading specific passages of the Qur’an). Because this prostration is not bound to the laws on prayer, it may be performed in any state, even with the head uncovered, etc.”

(1/249, Fatawa al-Jaami’ah li’l-mar’ah al-Muslimah.)

“It is not permissible for someone who is in a state of janaabah (impurity following sexual activity) to read Qur’an from the Mus-haf or elsewhere until he has done ghusl, because it was narrated that nothing stopped the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) from reading Qur’an except janaabah.” However, because of the overall meaning of the evidence, it is allowed for a person who has broken his wudoo’ (small impurity) to recite the Qur’an because of the evidence’s general meaning.”

(Fatawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 10/150)

Because this Qur’an is Allaah’s Word, it is desirable and mustahabb to conduct wudoo’ before reciting. As a symbol of respect, it is preferable to do wudoo’ before reading it.

Touching the Mus-haf, on the other hand, prohibits unless wudoo’ has been performed, since Allaah states (interpretation of the meaning):

“Which (that Book with Allaah) none can touch but the purified.”

[al-Waaqi’ah 56:79]

(Fatawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 10/150)

And Allaah is the most knowledgeable.

Silently listen to the Quran recitation

After we have provided in the previous lines a detailed answer about Is it necessary to wear hijab when reading Quran …?

We have to discuss another related matter. Is it necessary to Silently listen to the Quran recitation?

But there is one thing I’d like to mention at this point: I’ve discovered that Muslims often overlook or reject a more important etiquette linked to hearing the Qur’an recited aloud.

I’m referring to the obligation of being silent, that is, not conversing with anyone.

It more strongly recommends for every Muslim who has reached puberty to keep silent when hearing the Quran recited aloud.

Even if they don’t understand Arabic, they should pay attention. This is a Quranic instruction from Allah.

So when the Quran is recited, listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy. (Quran 7:204)

Situations that require wearing a hijab

In the course of talking about Do you have to wear hijab when reading Quran..?

Hijab is worn in two situations.

  • Male foreign.
  • With prayers

When reading or reciting the Qur’an alone, there is no need for a full hijab, but you should cover the sexy portions of your body out of reverence for Allah’s Majesty.

That is not only for women.

Males must also cover their shoulders and body parts since it is a meeting with Allah.

And numerous angels have come to hear the Qur’an from you, and angels are timid beings.

So we must honor Allah and his angels.

Finally, you can recite the Qur’an while exposing your hair, neck, hands, or even a half-arm.

But that’s all there is to it.

I’m not discussing halal and haram right now.

But rather the Sunnah and morals of Muslims in the presence of Allah subhanahu wa taa’ala.

It’s just to show respect since Allah can already see the blood coursing through your veins.

So there’s nothing we can conceal from him.

I hope this information is helpful.
