What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Can one play the recorded Quran recitation to make the children sleep?

Questioner: Thuabiyah from UK


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

It is a virtuous act to listen to the Qur’an recitation and to play it for others, and there is no harm in playing it for the children as well.  The Qur’an recitation is indeed a means of attracting tranquillity, and a means to attract the mercy of Allah Almighty which keeps the heart and mind at peace.  It is a thousand times better to play the recordings of Qur’an recitation for children, so they may get accustomed to listening to Qur’an recitation, rather than playing musical songs for them.
