  • Q5 - My cell phone has Quran apps.
    I frequently use my phone to read Quran.

    My question is:

    (1) DO I have to give my phone the same level of respect as I give to the book of Holy Quran

    (2) Can I take the phone to the bathroom

    Thanks

    A - Yes you can take it. What has come in the ahadith is to take extra care and respect for the mushaf (the physical book itself).
