I wish to know if it is permissible for me to listen the holy quran recitation while doing other work.
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:
Assalamualaikum brother Burhan and team
May Allah bestow his choicest favours on you for working hard to keep people like us guided to the right path.
Brother please guide me in accordance with the quran and the sunnah. I wish to know if it is permissible for me to listen the holy quran recitation while doing other work ..like when I am in the kitchen cooking.Is it considered as be-adabi ?

Listen to quran and do chores
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 204:
204 When the Qur'an is read, listen to it with attention and hold your peace: that ye may receive Mercy.
The Glorious Quran are indeed the very Words of Allah Subhanah, and without an iota of a doubt, one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day must honor its recitation and listen to it with attention so that he may comprehend its wise guidance and commands and strive to implement them in their lives.
What is absolutely disallowed and should never happen is that the Quran is being recited, and people are engaged in talking or conversating amongst themselves without paying any attention to the recitation of the Glorious Quran.
But if one is driving a car or any vehicle, or if one is working or doing something monotonous alone, or if one is cooking or going about their chores alone, etc., and one wishes to listen to the recitation of the Quran, there is absolutely no harm and it does not violate the guidance of the Quran.
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,
