Salam everyone, a thank you in advance to those who will read and those who will reply. Bless you all, even those who just click.

In the Holy and Noble Quran, it says:  None touch it except the purified".

My concern with this verse is that in our today's world, the Quran is no longer just a book. My phone, computer, tablet. Anything can be turned into the Quran. The human mind can also be turned into the Quran if one memorizes everything to the point. So my question is, let's say I want to read the Quran on my phone. Should I first disinfect my phone properly before doing so? 2nd question is let's say I look up the Quran on my phone and leave it there on my table. When I come back, my phone's screen is still on. with the Quran being displayed on it. Would my phone be considered a Quran and I'd have to first do Wudhu to pick it up? 

My apologies if it's a silly question but just something I've been thinking about lately as we are literally walking with thousands of books in one singular device everyday. 

Also side note: Do you have to do Wudhu before reciting the quran even from heart?

I think the verse is referring to the actual physical Quran and the Arabic words which cannot be touched only with wudu. But if you have a Quran app, you don't need wudu to touch it since it's on the phone and you don't need to disinfect your phone either, you also don't need to have wudu if you're reciting from heart.

Note: There are hadiths that talk about the benefit of reciting Quran while you have wudu. So before you begin the recitations regardless if you're reading it from your phone or by heart, try to make wudu because it holds much more benefits. Hope this helps, if you have any other questions, do ask, there are no silly questions.
