Ruling on Playing Quran In The Car From Speakers Next To The Feet
I have a question about the ruling on playing Quran in the car, as the sound comes out directly next to the feet.

Praise be to Allah.

Listening to Quran in the car is a righteous deed and a beneficial act of worship. But having the speakers directly next to one's feet in such a way that the sound of the Quran is heard from below is something that is not appropriate and you should limit it to the rear speakers if you have any, or do something to change the position of the speakers.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: In some cars the speakers are level with the feet, and feet or shoes may be placed on the speaker. My question is: when playing Quran, is there any disrespect to the Book of Allah in doing this? Is this comparable to your fatwa against those who stretched out their feet in front of the Book of Allah? We hope that you can advise us, may Allah preserve you.

He replied: If the speakers are beneath the feet as described or are level with the feet, then you should not play Quran, because the fact that the Quran is being heard from beneath a person’s feet is undoubtedly a kind of disrespect towards the Quran. If a person must listen to Quran, then he should lift the speakers above the level of his feet.
