Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
ASSALALAAM WALAI KUM BHAI,
I NEED YOUR ADVISE BHAI THAT IS I CARRY A MOBILE IN WHICH I HAVE SURAH KARIMA AND I CARRY THE MOBILE WITH ME ALWAYS ALSO AT TIME WHEN I GO TO THE TOILET. AM I DOING THE RIGHT THING OR WHAT SHOULD I DO PLEASE ADVISE ME
YOURS BROTHER IN ISLAM

Mobile Quran verses toilet
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The jurists are of the opinion that if some phrases or Surah of the Glorious Quran are stored in the ‘chip-memory’ of the mobile phone and one happens to carry the phone to the toilet for any reason, there is absolutely no harm. They base their argument on the fact that some portions of the Quran are also stored in the memory of one’s brains.
But if one’s mobile phone ‘screen’ displays the Aayah of the Glorious Quran, one should abstain from taking the mobile to the toilet, or alternatively change the screen to another format.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
