Wael Shehab, About Islam, Does Reading Quran on Phone Count?, 7 Dec 2023 “The above great merits and rewards are attained by a Muslim whether he or she reads from a mushaf (a copy of the Quran), or what is called digital Quran, i.e. on a computer screen, a mobile, a tablet, etc.”

This is a previously published opinion. I write about digital Qur’an issues here: ‘The Qur’an and the Internet.’ Chapter in George Archer, Maria M. Dakake, Daniel A. Madigan (editors) The Routledge Companion to the Qur’an,(Routledge, 2021)

It’s also mentioned in my next book, Islamic Algorithms.
