As-Salamu `alaykum. Does one need to have wudu' in order to read or handle a book containing a couple of surahs such as surat Yasin? Is this the same as one who handles the Qur’an?
As-Salamu `alaykum. I am sad to say that this is the first time that I have read the Qur’an, and I am reading it in English, so I am a little confused about something... I am only in the seventh surah and already I have read two verses that are said to have been ’abrogated’, ’cancelled’ or ’amended.’ Why, and how did the commentators/interpreters come to the conclusion that these verses were to be cancelled due to other verses? I find it hard to believe that anything in the Qur’an needs to be amended or cancelled! Could you please shed some light on this topic? Thank you.
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. What is the significance of verse 255 of Surat Al-Baqarah? Is there any proof of the greatness of this verse? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `Alaykum, I want to know if it is permissible to read the Glorious Qur'an while lying down. I do this because when lying down I happen to read more of it than when sitting, and recently someone told me it is not right.
As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the explanation of the verse that reads: “Women impure for men impure, and men impure for women impure and women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity: these are not affected by what people say: for them there is forgiveness, and a provision honorable.” (An-Nur: 26) I am asking because I have witnessed many marriages that do not conform with this verse?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Can we read or touch the Qur’an without being in the state of wudu', but of course being neat and clean? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Asalam alaykum. Praise be to Allah for making it possible for me to get this opportunity to ask you. I do not know Arabic, but i have managed to learn most of the Juz Ammah ie surah Naba till Surah Nas, even memorized some, but i am at a disadvantage with the rest of the Quran.i can try to recite but i sound so bad and iam scared of pronouncing the words the wrong way, even joinig the words is hard.Is listening to cassette or CD recitation or reading the translation okay because i want to finish the Quran in Ramadhan. will i be getting any rewards or lesser rewards? Advise me on all this please.
