What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Is it fard to listen to recorded Qur’ān, and likewise, do we need to reply to recorded Adhān??

Questioner: Ali from UK

It is not fard to listen to the recorded recitation of the Qur’ān because it has the ruling of an echo, but it is better that when one is walking about that it is listened to in silence, and if one does not intend to listen to it, then it be switched off so that the respect & reverence of the Qur’ān remains observed. Similarly, it is not a must to reply to a recorded Adhān.
