Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

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
