Purchasing a Quraan audio reciter for sadaqah jaariyah

Q: Is it considered Sadaqatul Jaariya if I purchase a Quraan audio reciter device and whenever anyone listens to the Quraan from this device during my lifetime and after my death I will get thawaab?

A: The thawaab is either to listen to the Quraan Shareef directly or to recite it. As far as listening to the Quran audio reciter device is concerned, then it is permissible. However, in regard to earning reward through listening to it, we are unclear about this. You may refer to other Ulama.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
