Question

Is it allowed to sit on a bench some distance away if the Qur'an is placed at a lower level for reading purposes? Thank You.

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
It is an obligation on every Muslim to glorify the Qur'an and spend his utmost efforts to safeguard its
prestige. It is desirable not to sit in a place higher than the place where the Qur'an is put, one should lift up the Qur'an in a suitable place. But if it is kept in a locker, or the like, or in a place far from sitting place, it would not be a matter of concern; as there is no initial intention of dishonoring it.
Allah knows best.
