Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His Slave and Messenger.

It is permissible to recite the Quran or read Hadeeth books and scholars’ Fataawa while lying in one's bed; ‘Aa’ishah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  her said: “The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would rest on my lap when I was menstruating and recite the Quran.” [Muslim]

An-Nawawi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said: “It implies that it is permissible to recite the Quran while lying down and while resting on a menstruating woman.

Allaah Knows best.
