السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

when my Hafidhul Qur'an brother revise his lesson, he recites loudly, while I read any other book or doing something else so I don't listen to his Tilawah; would there be sin upon me for not listening to it? Since I keep hearing from other family members that we must listen if someone is making Tilawah in front of us.

Please post if anyone finds any fatwah. Jazakumullah.

Some Important Rules Relating to Listening and Remaining Silent When Qur'an is Being Recited


In contrast with what has been said above, it is obvious that whoever flouts these rules and shows disrespect to the Qur'an will deserve Divine wrath, not mercy.

As for listening to the recitation of the Qur'an in the Salah and remaining silent therein, Muslims generally know about it - though, they do fall short in practice. Some of them would not even be aware of the Surah recited by the Imam. For such people, it is imperative that they should realize the greatness of the Qur'an, and listen to it attentively. This Islamic legal norm applies to the Khutbah of Jumu'ah etc. In addition to this verse, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) particularly said about the Khutbah:

When the Imam comes out (for Khutbah), then, there is no Salah and no conversation.


And it also appears in a Hadith that no one should say anything to anyone during Khutbah, not even a verbal advice is allowed to be given to another person to keep silence (if it has to be done, making a sign by hand should be enough). The objective is to emphasize that, during the Khutbah, no conversation of any kind, tasbih, durud or Salah or acts of similar nature are permissible.

Muslim jurists have said that the rule which applies to the Khutbah of Jumu'ah applies to the Khutbah of the two 'Eid prayers and that of Nikah (marriage) for, at that time, listening to it and remaining silent is obligatory (wajib).

However, in case someone is reciting on his own under usual conditions other than Salah and Khutbah, the question arises: Will others be required to be silent and listen to it? Whether or not would it be obligatory (wajib)on them? The positions taken by Muslim jurists in this matter differ. Some consider listening and remaining silent in this condition too as wajib and doing against it a sin. It is for this reason that they have ruled that it is not permissible for anyone to recite the Qur'an in a loud voice at places where people are busy doing their chores or are resting. They have also said that anyone who recites the Qur'an in a loud voice in such surroundings shall be a sinner. This is as it appears in Khulasatu 1-Fatawa and other juristic works.

But, some other jurists have distinguished different situations from one another by saying that listening attentively is wajib only on occasions where the Qur'an is being recited for the express purpose of being listened to - such as, in Salah and Khutbah etc. And should it be that someone is reciting on his own, or some people are doing their own recitation at one place, then, it is not wajib to listen and be silent.
The reason is that it stands proved on the authority of sound Ahadith that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) used to recite the Qur'an in his nightly prayers in a raised voice. At that time, his blessed wives would be sleeping. At times, his voice could also be heard from outside his roomette.

There is a Hadith in al-Bukhari and Muslim. It says that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) made a stop on his journey and when morning came he said , 'I recognized my Ash'arite companions by the voices of their recitation of Qur'an during the darkness of the night and was able to pinpoint the direction and location of their tents - though, I had no idea during the day as to where they stay.

This event shows that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) never asked these Asharite companions as to why they were reciting the Qur'an in a loud voice, nor did he tell those sleeping that they all had to get up and listen to the Qur'an when it was being recited.

As based on narratives such as these, jurists have given some leeway in the case of recitation outside Salah. But, they all consider it better and preferable to listen and be silent when the sound of the recitation of the Qur'an comes from somewhere - even if it is outside the Salah. For this reason, in places where people are resting or working, it is not appropriate to recite the Qur'an in a loud voice.

This exposes the error of people who turn their radios to full volume at the time some program of recitation from the Qur'an comes on the air, particularly at places and gatherings where the crowd would not listen to it attentively. Similarly, the practice of relaying the recitation of the Qur'an from the public address systems of mosques late at night, in a manner that the sound goes out and disturbs the sleep of the sleeping or the work of the working, is not correct.

'Allamah ibn al-Humam has written that, at the time the Imam in Salah, or the Khatib in Khutbah, is reciting something about the Jannah or Jahannam, then, at that time, it is not permissible even to pray for Jannah or seek refuge from Jahannam. The reason is that, according to this verse, the promise of mercy from Allah Ta'ala is for the person who remains silent when the Qur'an is being recited - and whoever does not remain silent, to him the promise does not apply.

Yes, if one supplicates voicelessly after the recitation of such verses during his nafl prayers, it is an act proved by Sunnah, and is worthy of reward as well. (Mazhari)

We aren't supposed to discuss the answers here. The reply has been given with two opinions and the conclusion is based on your own circumstances.

Hope this helps...from Ma'ariful Qur'an:

"And said those who disbelieved, "Do not listen to this Qur'an, and make noise during its recitation, so that you may overcome."

Fussilat:26

(Do not listen to this Qur'an, and make noise during its recitation, - 41:26) When all the efforts of the disbelievers failed in confronting the Holy Qur'an, they started doing such mischievous acts as mentioned in this verse. Sayyidna Ibn 'Abbas رضي الله عنه Allah be pleased with him has stated that Abu Jahl got his people primed up and ready to make noises whenever Muhammad (saw) recited the Qur'an, so that people might not find out what he is saying. Some have said that preparations were made to stop people from listening to the Qur'an by whistling, clapping and by making all sorts of noises during the recitation.

classicalislamgroup.com/index.php?view=tafseer/s41-v26to29

It is Wajib (Necessary) to Listen Quietly While Qur'an is Being Recited; It is Infidel's Way Not to Remain Quiet.

It is learnt from the above verse that making noises with the intention of creating disturbance in the recitation of the Qur'an is a sign of disbelief. It is also known that to listen quietly to the recitation of the Qur'an is wajib (necessary) and a sign of faith. It has become a usual practice in our days that people put their radios (and cassette players) on where the Holy Qur'an is recited with loud voice, which can be heard in about every restaurant and place of gathering, while people go about their business never paying any attention to the Holy Qur'an. This practice presents a picture that was a sign of infidels. May Allah Almighty guide Muslims. They should either avoid the recitation of the Holy Qur'an at such places and on such occasions where people are unable to listen to it, or if they wish to benefit from the blessing of the recitation, they must listen to it quietly and attentively.

qa.sunnipath.com/issue_view.asp?HD=1&ID=2508&CATE=32


From sunnipath, but to be taken with great caution as many have doubted him, including my self, Jazakallah muslim11 for the reminder!


Question:

About listening to the Quran. I want to listen to as much as possible, but do I have to sit and listen, or can I do work while listening? What about kids...should we play it while they play, even though they may not be paying full attention to it. I don't want to teach him to disregard Allah's words, however I also want to try to get through the whole Quran. Some guidance please



Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Allah has commanded us that we be 'attentive' when listening to the Qur'an. Full attentiveness is something few have throughout, even when doing nothing else but listening.

What is minimally sought, however, is to:

a) trying one's reasonable best to pay attention,

b) avoid mentally busying yourself completely with other things (e.g. reading a book or article while listening to the Qur'an).

[al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya (1.317), Ghunyat al-Mustamli Sharh Munyat al-Musalla (quoted in al-Mawsu`a al-Fiqhiyya), Hashiyat al-Tahtawi `ala Maraqi al-Falah]

Thus, it is permitted to recite and listen to the Qur'an if one is doing housework, taking care of the children, driving, walking, or performing other worldly activities, if the above conditions of basic attentiveness are generally fulfilled.

As for the children, hearing the Qur'an has great benefit for them, even when they are playing around.



And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
Faraz Rabbani


في الفتاوى الهنديّة: (1/317) يجوز للمحترف كالحائك والإسكاف قراءة القرآن إذا لم يشغل عمله قلبه عنها وإلا فلا ,



. قال في غنية المتملي : (نقلاً عن الموسوعة الفقهيّة ، ومثله في حاشية الطحطاوي على المراقي) القراءة ماشيا أو وهو يعمل عملا إن كان منتبها لا يشغل قلبه المشي والعمل جائزة وإلا تكره .

(salam)

What about people who often put Surah Baqrah, Surah Yaseen, Surah Rahman tilawah on in their houses for various reasons.

Will they also have to listen to it attentively, this will be however impossible at times and also it's a better alternative than the music on tv etc.

So far in essence after reading the above their are mixed views, one side for it and one side a bit lax towards it ?

جزاك الله خيرا
