Reading The Qur’aan at work


I am an employee and I read the Noble Qur’aan during break time at work but my manager forbids me to do so saying that this is the working time and it is not the time of reading Qur’aan.  So what is the ruling on this affair? May Allaah reward you with good.


If you are not working, there is no harm in reading the Qur’aan; likewise (is the case) for the Tasbeeh (glorification), Tahleel (saying Laa Ilaaha Ill Allaah) and the Dhikr; and it is better than remaining quiet. However if reading keeps you busy and (due to it) you are not able to fulfill your work then it is not permissible; and this is because this time is specific for your work; so it is not permissible to keep busy with something that prevents you from working.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
