7-43 حدثنا حمزة بن محمد بن أحمد العلوي رضي الله عنه قال: أخبرني علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن عبد الله بن المغيرة، عن السكوني، عن جعفر بن محمد عن أبيه، عن آبائه، عن علي عليهم السلام قال: سبعة لايقرؤون القرآن: الراكع والساجد وفي الكنيف وفي الحمام والجنب والنفساء والحائضقال مصنف هذا الكتاب رضي الله عنه: هذا على الكراهة لا على النهي وذلك لان الجنب والحائض مطلق لهما قراءة القرآن إلا العزائم الاربع وهي سجدة لقمان وحم السجدة والنجم إذا هوى وسورة اقرأ باسم ربك، وقد جاء الاطلاق للرجل في قراءة القرآن في الحمام ما لم يرد به الصوت إذا كان عليه مئزر، وأما الركوع والسجود فلا يقرأ فيهما لان الموظف فيهما التسبيح إلاماورد في صلاة الحاجة، وأما الكنيف فيجب أن يصان القرآن من أن يقرأ فيه، وأما النفساء فتجري مجرى الحائض في ذلك

7-43 Hamzih ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Alavi - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim quoted his father, on the authority of Abdullah ibn al-Muqayrih, on the authority of Al-Sakoony, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB), “Seven persons should not recite the Quran: one who is bowing down; one who is prostrating; one who is in the toilet; one who is in the bath; one who is in a state of major ritual impurity; a woman who is in childbed; and a menstruating woman.”The author of this book - may God be pleased with him - said, “This indicates that this is detested, not that it is absolutely forbidden. As you know it is absolutely forbidden for one who is in a state of major ritual impurity and a woman who is menstruating to recite the Quran. There are four Quranic Chapters which require prostration as follows: Luqman; Ha-mim; An-Najm; and Iqra. It has also been narrated that one can recite the Quran in the bath if his recitation is not meant to be a form of singing and his private parts should also be covered. One should not recite the Quran while bowing down or prostrating since they are meant for glorifications, except for praying for a need in which it is allowed. One should not recite the Quran in the toilet. A woman who is in childbed is like one who is menstruating.”
