Some people post a picture of one page of Quraan Shareef daily onto their Facebook profiles calling it “Daily Tilawah ”

Hundreds if not thousands of people scroll past this, many times without Wudhoo and many may be non-Muslim as well.

What is the Fatwa regarding this?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to encourage the recitation of the Quran through such means.[1] 

It is advisable to be in the state of wudhu while touching the screen displaying the Quran.[2][3]

However, scrolling through an app or webpage containing the Quran with a computer mouse or touchpad will not be considered touching the Quran; hence, no wudhu will be necessary for a Muslim or non-Muslim to scroll through such webpages.[4]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
