Details of the Question
Is it religiously permitted to read the Qur'an commentary books without (wudu) ablution? If permitted, is it permissible for women to read them when they are in menstruation period?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is allowed to touch and read the Quran commentary, Hadith, and Fiqh books without ablution.

It is regarded abominable (makrooh) to read them for those who are in menstruation period and puerperum. Here makrooh is tanzihan makrooh because it is necessary to touch them. Therefore, some scholars have said that there is no evil in touching or reading them. In order to show respect for scholars’ views, it is better touch those books by having a piece of cloth, shirt, etc between the books and your hand.
