The Rules of the Holy Quran

Ayatullah al-`Uzma al-Hajj ash-Shaykh Lutfullah as-Safi al-Gulpaygani
Issue 464: The Quran must always be kept clean and tidy and it is Haram to make the writing or the pages of the Quran Najis, and if it becomes Najis, then it must be made tahir immediately with water.
Issue 465: If the cover of the Quran is made Najis, and it is considered as disrespect to the Quran, then it must be made tahir with water.

Touching the Script of the Quran
Issue 466: It is Haram to touch the Quran with any part of the body, for someone who does not have Wudhu.
Issue 467: In touching the writings of the Quran, there is no difference between the Ayat and words, rather even the letters or the vowel points on the letters.
Issue 468: There is no difference as to what the Quran is written on, be it paper, ground, the wall or a cloth.
Issue 469: There is no difference as to how the Quran is written, whether it is with a pen, computer printer, chalk or with anything else.
Issue 470: Even if the writings of the Quran are not in the Quran itself, it is still Haram to touch it. Therefore, if an Ayat of the Quran is written in a book, rather if even one word is found on a piece of paper, or even half a word from a page of the Quran or another book is ripped out, then touching this without Wudhu is also Haram.
Issue 471: The following instances do not constitute touching the script of the Quran, and thus are not Haram (to touch):
Touching the script of the Quran covered by glass or plastic.
Touching the pages of the Quran, the cover or the margins - although it is Makruh.
Touching the translation of the Quran that is in any language, except the name of Allah. For one who does not have Wudhu, touching the name of Allah in any language is Haram, for example the Persian word .
Issue 472: Words that are common between the Quran and books other than the Quran, like the words or if they are written with the intention of being from the Quran, then touching them without Wudhu is Haram (otherwise it is not a problem).
Issue 473: Touching the script of the Quran for one who is Junub, is Haram.
Issue 474: It is not permitted for a Junub to recite one of the 4 Ayats that contain a Wajib Sajdah (as was explained in Rule 120).
