Do you have to be clean to read the Quran?

During the reading of the Quran, one must keep himself or herself clean. The standardized hygiene requirement for reciting the Holy Quran consists of a major ablution called Ghusl and a minor ablution called Wudu. The major ablution is required before performing any act of worship, while the minor ablution is sufficient only when impurity due to menstruation has occurred.

The Quran states that "whenever you stand for prayer, wash your faces, and wipe your heads with clean cloths." (Quran 2:44) Cleanliness is important because it reflects respect for God's creation. As Muslims, we are encouraged to lead healthy lifestyles by staying away from harmful substances like drugs and alcohol. However, we should not let this distract us from keeping ourselves clean, especially in terms of hygiene when praying or reading the Quran.

Additionally, since the hands are used during the reading of the Quran to indicate words that need explanation or commentary, they too need to be cleaned. The Quran states that "the hand of anyone who prays silently is purer than the moon, but as for the hand that touches something unclean, it will make him lose his purity." (Quran 7:27) Thus, while praying one should avoid coming into contact with objects such as dirty houses or streets.

Why do Muslims have to wash their hands before touching the Qur’an?

Muslims are required to wash their hands before touching the Qur'an in order to be purified. Muhammad, too, washed his hands before praying, and we follow in the footsteps of this Holy Prophet. Wudhu cleanses our bodies, which are often filthy. According to the Qur'an, performing Wudhu makes you cleaner. How can Muslims demonstrate their adoration for the Quran? They wash their hands before they touch it. This also shows that they respect its purity.

The hadith (stories about the prophet) say that he used to wash his hands when he was angry or if he accidentally touched something dirty. The most important thing is that we should all try to show respect by washing our hands after coming in contact with the Quran.

Being clean: The first and most important mandatory activity that is mandated to be followed is cleansing oneself before touching or reading the Holy Quran. Dirty hands will cause one to dirty the Quran, so it is essential to wash before reading the Quran.

Washing one's self: To wash oneself means to use water and a soap for cleaning purposes. There are two ways to wash yourself: physically and spiritually. Physical washing involves bathing, showering, washing your hands, face, and other body parts. Spiritual washing involves praying, reading the Quran, and other forms of worship that help you connect with God and grow as a person.

Why should I wash my hands before eating?

The hand is the tool that touches everything while eating; therefore, it needs to be cleaned properly before and after eating each meal.

What do Muslims do before reading the Qur’an?

Muslims must undertake a ceremonial wash, known as wudu, before reading the Qur'an, and they must use an authorised translation of the Qur'an if they are unable to read it in the original Arabic.

The washing requirements vary from one Islamic denomination to another, but generally include washing one's hands, face, arms, and feet. Washing one's face is particularly important because the Qur'an is written on parchment (usually sheep's skin) using calligraphy that was developed for writing on stone tablets. The ink used for printing Bibles today is not suitable for reading the Qur'an because it is designed to be readable by humans rather than computers. A Muslim who reads the Qur'an from a printed book will usually have it read aloud for them so they can hear the words themselves as well as see them.

There are many different translations of the Qur'an available, but the one requirement all versions of the holy book share is that they must be an "unaided translation" - that is, one that does not contain any explanatory notes or commentaries by people other than God. This means that any word that is unclear in meaning, or that is better expressed in another way, cannot be translated into English.
