Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you should read it to the end!
Specifically, there are three important things about “is it okay to listen to Quran without wudu?” which I will explain in this article. The three important things I mean are as follows:

When Do We Have to Do Wudu?
The first important thing about “is it okay to listen to Quran without wudu?” what I will explain now is “when do we have to do wudu?”. I want you to understand that first before you read any more explanations in this article because those are the basic questions on this topic that should be well understood.
Wudu is one of the things in Islam that is very popular with Muslims. There is a lot of discussion about wudu in Islamic legal literature. It all explains that wudu is one of the most important things.
The main reason why wudu is so important is because it is one of the ways to get rid of small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ). Wudu is the most important way. If Muslims cannot perform wudu to remove small hadas, they must perform Tayammum.
Small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) is one of the conditions that prevent Muslims from performing certain acts of worship that require them to be in a holy condition while doing them, such as touching the Quran, Tawaf, and prayer. The other condition is big hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَكْبَرُ). Small hadas can be removed by wudu and Tayammum. While big hadas can only be removed with ghusl Janabah.
We are prohibited from praying (salat) if they do not have wudu. We can find this explanation in the following Quranic verse:
يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْٓا اِذَا قُمْتُمْ اِلَى الصَّلٰوةِ فَاغْسِلُوْا وُجُوْهَكُمْ وَاَيْدِيَكُمْ اِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ وَامْسَحُوْا بِرُءُوْسِكُمْ وَاَرْجُلَكُمْ اِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِۗ وَاِنْ كُنْتُمْ جُنُبًا فَاطَّهَّرُوْاۗ وَاِنْ كُنْتُمْ مَّرْضٰٓى اَوْ عَلٰى سَفَرٍ اَوْ جَاۤءَ اَحَدٌ مِّنْكُمْ مِّنَ الْغَاۤىِٕطِ اَوْ لٰمَسْتُمُ النِّسَاۤءَ فَلَمْ تَجِدُوْا مَاۤءً فَتَيَمَّمُوْا صَعِيْدًا طَيِّبًا فَامْسَحُوْا بِوُجُوْهِكُمْ وَاَيْدِيْكُمْ مِّنْهُ ۗمَا يُرِيْدُ اللّٰهُ لِيَجْعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّنْ حَرَجٍ وَّلٰكِنْ يُّرِيْدُ لِيُطَهِّرَكُمْ وَلِيُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهٗ عَلَيْكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ
O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you, but He intends to purify you and complete His favor upon you that you may be grateful. (Al-Maidah : 6).
We can also find the explanation in the following hadiths:
وَعَنْ عَبَّادِ بْنِ تَمِيمٍ ، عَنْ عَمِّهِ ، أَنَّهُ شَكَا إِلَى رَسُوْلِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الرَّجُلُ الَّذِي يُخَيَّلُ إِلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ يَجِدُ الشَّىْءَ فِي الصَّلاَةِ . فَقَالَ : لاَ يَنْفَتِلْ أَوْ لاَ يَنْصَرِفْ حَتَّى يَسْمَعَ صَوْتًا أَوْ يَجِدَ رِيحًا
From ‘Abbad bin Tamim, from his uncle, that there was once a man who complained to the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he hesitated as if he found something (fart) in his prayer (salat). He then said, “He must not move or leave until he hears the voice or smells the smell.”
عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : لَا يَقْبَلُ اللهُ صَلَاةَ أَحَدِكُمْ إِذَا أَحْدَثَ حَتَّى يَتَوَضَّأَ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ
From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Allah does not accept someone’s prayer from you if he has hadas (small hadas) until he performs wudu.” This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قاَلَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِذَا وَجَدَ أَحَدُكُمْ فِيْ بَطْنِهِ شَيْئًا فَأَشْكَلَ عَلَيْهِ أَخَرَجَ مِنْهُ شَيْءٌ أَمْ لَا ؟ فَلَا يَخْرُجَنَّ مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ حَتَّى يَسْمَعَ صَوْتًا أَوْ يَجِدَ رِيْحًا . أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ
From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “If one of you finds something in his stomach, then he doubts whether something has come out of him or not? So, he is not allowed to leave the mosque until he hears a sound or smells an aroma.” This hadith was narrated by Muslim.
عَنْ عَلِيٍّ بْنِ طَلْقٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِذَا فَسَا أَحَدُكُمْ فِي الصَّلَاةِ فَلْيَنْصَرِفْ وَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ وَلْيُعِدْ الصَّلَاةَ . رَوَاهُ الْخَمْسَةَ
From Ali bin Thalq radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) has said, “If one of you has emitted a soundless wind from his anus while praying (salat), then let him go out and perform wudu, then repeat the prayer (salat).” The hadith was narrated by five people (Ahmad, Abu Daud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa’i, Ibn Majah).
Now, if you ask me, “when do we have to do wudu?”, the answer is as follows:
- If we have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and will touch the Quran.
- If we have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and going to pray.
- If we have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and will perform Tawaf.
That’s a brief explanation of “when do we have to do wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Is It Okay to Listen to Quran Without Wudu?
The second important thing about “is it okay to listen to Quran without wudu?” what I will explain now is a specific explanation. So, I really hope you read the explanation below very well.
I have already explained that if Muslims have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and are going to touch the Quran, they must have wudu first. One important thing that I have to make clear here and that you should always keep in mind is that there is a big difference between listening to Quran and reading the Quran. The difference I mean is as follows:
- Listening to Quran does not mean reading it.
- listening to Quran can be done without touching it.
Now, if you ask me, “is it okay to listen to Quran without wudu?”, the answer is “”Yes, we can listen to the Quran without wudu.”
That’s a brief explanation of “is it okay to listen to Quran without wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
