Are we allowed to scroll through Quran on a screen without wudhu?
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.
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.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
