Reciting the Qur'an while riding a mount

Q: Is it permissible to recite the Qur’an while riding an animal, such as a camel, a horse, a donkey, or while driving a car? Please enlighten us.


A: It is permissible for a Muslim to recite the Qur’an while riding an animal, in a car, or on a plane. (Part No. 4; Page No. 36) It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) offered Salah (Prayer) while riding his mount. Further support for this ruling is the general principle in Allah’s saying: Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding. Those who remember Allâh (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides The word "remember" includes reading the Qur’an and other forms of Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
