I was wondering if you could help me.
I am trying to learn surahs of the Quran, Arabic as well as translation. So, that I do not waste my time I print off a page of the Surah from www.MuslimAccess.com. I just thought about this that I carry around an English Translation of the Quran
1. which I have been told it is permissible to read if one does not have Wudhu? (Can you clarify/confirm this?)
2. plus, do I need wudhu when reading learning/reading that page from Muslimaccess.com as I just thought about when Umar (radiallah anhu) was told to wash before reading the surah (out of curiosity do you know which one? ). Do I need to have wudhu? It is just I read the page when I am on the bus or train where logistically I can not make wudhu immediately.
Please, please, please do not give me a happy/pal answer. I don't care whether the answer is a straight NO. I just need the CORRECT answer and insha'allah with your duas as well Allah will make it easier.
