Reading English Translation of Quraan while Menstruating

Q: Is it permissable for me to read the Arabic Quraan with English translation when I am menstruating? I am reading the English text with a view of gaining the reward in Ramadaan and also to understand the message of the Quraan.

You may read the English translation during your haidh, but be careful not to hold the Quran unless you are using a cloth. Do not touch the Arabic text of the Holy Quran in that state.
