Question: What is the ruling regarding the menstruating woman touching the text of the Qur.aan which is stored on a mobile phone?

Response: [The ruling regarding that which is stored on] the mobile phone is not [the same as] a Qur.aan, [rather] it is [merely a digital] rendition; so it is permissible to carry it and hold it.
