A Person In A Minor State Of Impurity May Not Touch The Qur’aan
Question:

If a person is in a minor state of impurity – such as someone who passes wind, urinates, of defecates – may he recite the Qur’aan?
Answer:

Such a person may recite but not touch the Mushaf, for complete purification is not one of the requisites for reciting the Qur’aan. On the other hand, a person who is Junub may neither touch nor recite the Qur’aan until he performs Ghusl, yet he may still recite certain invocations from the Qur’aan, such as, “Bismillah-ir-Rahmaan-ir-Raheem,” or when he is afflicted, “Indeed we belong to Allaah, and indeed, to Him are we returning.”
