Acts for which Purification is Stipulated

Topic/Issue:51 - Touching Mushaf --
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Hanafi, Malik, ShafiAblution is required to touch the mushafThe purified in the verse 56:79 refers to humans and the ayah implies prohibition.
This is further strengthened by what Prophet (SAW) wrote in this letter to Amr ibn Hazm that no one should touch the quran unless he was pure. Though the scholars dispute this hadith as writing errors occurred in them.
Imam Malik made an exemption for minors as they have not reached the age of liability.
ZahiritesAblution is not requiredThe purified in the verse 56:79 alludes to angels and as there is no evidence in Quran or in the sunna, the matter is to be left to the original rule of non-liability, which is permissibility.
