Question 44: As Salaam Alaikum wr..Dear Sheikh,

Is there any difference in terms of getting the reward for reading Qur’an from electronic Mushaf (mobile app) and hard copy printed Mushaf?

JazakAllahu Khairan.

Answer: Assalamualaikum Brother,

Based on verses from the Quran (such as Surah Saad 29) which refer to concentration, the scholars said that we should read from whatever will give us the most concentration and will aide us to reflect upon it’s verses.

So some people may be able to concentrate more if they read from a mushaf while others might concentrate more if they read from an electronic device or from their memory.
