Pearl of Wisdom

'Abu 'Abdillah (AS) went out on a drizzly night, heading towards the refuge of Bani Sa'ida. So I followed him, when suddenly something fell from him.' He said, 'In the name of Allah, O Allah! Return it back to us.' [He continued], 'I came to him and greeted him, and he asked, 'Are you Mu'alla?' I said, 'Yes, may I be your ransom.' He said, 'Search around with your hands and if you find anything give it to me.' I found pieces of bread, so I extended my hands to give them to him. I was amazed to see a sack of bread on his back. I asked, may I be your ransom! Allow me to carry it for you!' He said, 'No! I deserve [the load] more than you but come with me.' He said, 'We came to the refuge of Bani Sa'ida, where we came across a people who were asleep. He placed one or two loafs of bread under the garment of each and every person until he had come to the last person. We then left.' I said, may I be your ransom, do these people acknowledge the truth [of leadership]?' He said, 'If they did, we would have given them the flour as well.'

Question : #557 Category: Wudhu / Ghusal
Subject: Wudhu and Quran
Question: Assalam o Alaikum.

Wadhu is necessary for touching Quranic verses. My question is, what about touching quranic text which is being displayed on a TV/computer/mobile screen?

Can we touch these screens without wadhu? Kindly tell the fatwa of Ayatollah Sistani.
Answer: Alaykum Salaam,

According to his Eminence Ayatollah Sistani, it is haraam to touch the script of the Holy Quran with any part of ones body, without performing Wudhu.

However, there is no harm in touching the translation of the Holy Quran, in any language, or different mediums without Wudhu.
