Reciting the Qur’an While Stretching One’s Leg

There is nothing wrong with reading from the Mushaf while one is stretching his or her leg or even lying down, wearing slippers etc.

Al-Bukhari and Muslim narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to lie in `A’ishah’s lap and recite Qur’an.

Imam Al-Nawawi commented: This indicates that it is permissible to read Qur’an while reclining and lying down.
