Reciting Quran while breastfeeding

Home / Manners with Quran / Reciting Quran while breastfeeding


Dear teacher, I have a baby that is three months old. Most of the time when I breastfeed her I’m idle. May I utilize this time to recite Quran? Is it allowed to recite Quran while a part of my breast is exposed?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

There is no ruling stating that a woman should cover herself while reciting the Quran. I did not find a fatwa regarding this specific case. My advice to you is that you can put any shawl on yourself and recite Quran.
