Quran Recitation for Women



Are women allowed to recite quran when they can’t pray ?
If not, in which language is it not allowed ? Arabic ? Or even the translation ?
And, is it Haram or not preferable ?

Thank you


Yes, they are allowed to recite the Qur’an even in Arabic. Well, they are not supposed to recite the verses with obligatory sajdahs.

However, it is Makruh to recite more than seven verses. The meaning of Makruh in this context could be traced in the following link:
