Question

As-salaamu 3laikum. Sometimes we listen to recitations of the Qur'an on Youtube in order to listen to a particular reciter. However, it seems that the videos on Youtube have to be given a category when they are added to the website. So some videos of Qur'an recitation are categorised under 'music' and some under 'people and blogs'. What is the ruling on listening to them when they are categorised in this way? Jazaakum Allahu khairan

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.

There is nothing wrong at all with listening to the recitations of the Quran or any other recitation if they are categorized as you mentioned. This categorization is not an impediment for listening and benefiting from them.

Allaah Knows best.
