There is a hadith wherin it is mentioned that if a person recites Surah Al Baqarah in the home, the shaytan will not be able to enter the home. Does this ruling also apply to one who listens to the Surah being recited from an audio tape? 


No, the recitation from an audio recording does not benefit (with regards to protection). This is because it can not be said that the person has (in fact) read the Quran, but rather it is said that he listened to a previous recording. Similarly, if we were to record an athan, and at the time of prayer we played the recorded athan, this would not be accepted. Likewise if we did the same with a Jum’ah (Friday) sermon, and at the time of Jum’ah prayer we played the sermon through the microphones, and (person on) the tape said: Asalam u alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu, and then the caller of the athan calls to prayer, and the Imam gives the sermon (all on tape). Would any of this be correct and accepted? No it would not! Why? Because this is all considered a previous recording and it is similar to someone writing on a piece of paper or placing a Quran in his home. This does not take the place of reciting the Surah (for protection).

And have you seen the water that you drink?

Is it you who brought it down from the clouds, or is it We who bring it down?

If We willed, We could make it bitter, so why are you not grateful?

And have you seen the fire that you ignite? Is it you who produced its tree, or are We the producer?

We have made it a reminder and provision for the travelers,

So exalt the name of your Lord, the Most Great. 

(Surah al-Waqi’ah, Verses 68-74).

 O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do?

 Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do.

“May Allaah have mercy over the person who speaks little, reads the Qur’aan, weeps over his lost time,constantly gazes into al-Bukhaaree and Muslim and worships Allaah before he is surprised by death.”
