    No you don't need wudhu, and allah knows best.

    If it isn't too much trouble, can you explain why I don't need to do wudu when reading the English Translation of the Holy Quran with arabic text in my Iquran application?

    Bismillah...

    I think it may be becuase it is not considered a Mushaf but not sure. Perhaps Ustadh Abu Zakariyya would clarify, Barakallah Fihi.

    Was-Salam

    Well there are multiple reasons.

    First being that it is not the Qur'an(mushaf) thus you don't need to be in a state of wudhu to touch it, because if that was the case then any time you use the phone you would have to have wudhu because you have the Qur'an program in it(and thats not the case).

    Second being that reading the qur'an from your phone is not reading the Mushaf, and thus is allowed just like reading from your memory, or from a mushaf without touching it.

    Thirdly, since it has the English translation it adds to the fact that it is not a mushaf because it would then be considered an explanation and thus be allowed even if it was in book form as long as the explanation is larger then the Qur'an itself.

    Assalamu aliakum,

    I remember reading on AskImam that if one touches the Arabic portion of the Qur'an on the screen one would require wudu. But holding the ipod itself will not require wudu.
