Can we use these to turn the pages of the Quran if someone has a problem to be in a state of wadu but not qualify for Mazoor.
[Rubber finger tips]
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
In principle, it is necessary to have wudhu when touching the Qur’aan. If one who is not in the state of wudhu touches the Qur’aan with a detached item, then this will be permissible. If something is worn or attached, such as gloves, then it will get the same ruling as the hand. Accordingly, in the enquired situation, it will not be permissible to use the above finger tips to touch the Qur’aan when you are not in the state of wudhu. The finger tips take the place of your fingers and thus the same ruling applies. Alternatively, you may consider using the eraser portion or stylus portion of a pencil or pen.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
