May I Hold a Mushaf With the Translation Without Ablution?

Shafi'i Fiqh

Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad 


Are we allowed to hold and recite the Quran which has a translation without wudu?


Thank you for your question.

Please see your answer here:
Touching and carrying a copy of the Qur’an without wudu

It says in the Reliance of the Traveller, e8.2:

“[…] It is permissible to carry books of Sacred Law, hadith, or Koranic exegesis which contain Koran, provided that most of their text is not Koran (O: because the non-Koranic part is the purpose, though this is unlawful if half or more is Koran)[…].“

May Allah give you the best of this world and the next.
