Reading Soft Copies of the Quran and Tafseer Books


I like to read quran, translator and tafsir from mobile. I do not have more interest to read those from hardcopy books or paper quran. Is any problem if i read quran, tafsir continuously instead of read original quran? Is it any problem for my "Iman" for no Have interest on Hard copy quran? Give me a suggestion what i should do?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

You are not sinful by reading the Quran and the books of Tafseer (interpretation of the Quran) – or other books of Islamic knowledge – from electronic copies on the phone.

The fact that you prefer reading the soft copies over the hard copies is not a disobedience and you are not sinful for this.

For more benefit, please refer to Fatwa 90896.

Allah knows best.
