Can a person touch the Holly Qur’an who satisfies all the conditions of ‘Taharat‘ but is without ablution (wudhu)?
I am trying to become a ‘Hafiz1’ of the Holly Qur’an so in order to practice more frequently I want to know that “Is there any flexibility regarding the above question according to Qur’an and the Sunnah?”
With best regards
Being in a state of ablution is not a necessary condition to touch the Qur’an. If the Prophet (pbuh) has not made it a necessary condition to touch the Qur’an, then no one else has the authority to do so. A person may, as a show of his reverence toward the book, of his own will, perform ablution before touching the book. Nevertheless, ablution for this purpose cannot be termed as ‘obligatory2’.
