Use the following chart as a quick reference
|Type||Description||Can I recite from memory?||Can I touch a mushaf?||Comments|
|Menstruation||The periodic blood that flows as a discharge from womens body||Ok according to stronger opinion.||No||
|Janaba||The state of a person after sexual discharge, whether it was due to intercourse, an erotic dream or anything else||No||No||You can touch a mushaf (a copy of the Qur’an — more Arabic then anything else) if there’s something in between you and it, such as a cloth|
|Minor Impurity||The state of a person after wudoo is broken||Yes||No||There is another opinion that allows touching a mushaf in this state|
There are differences of opinion in some of these issues. I encourage everyone to study the evidences in details.
