Playing the Quran out loud during work


Is it permissible to play the noble Quran on a recorder during work?


If it happens that it is being listened to and or there is silence and there is no speech taking place then there is no problem with that, Allah says:

{وَإِذَا قُرِئَ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ فَٱسۡتَمِعُوا۟ لَهُۥ وَأَنصِتُوا۟ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تُرۡحَمُونَ}

“So, when the Quran is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy.” [Surat Al-A’raf 204]

As for if the Qur’an is playing and they are talking or laughing or they are distracted, then it is not permissible.
