CHECK: When some one is reciting Qur’an Sharif is it Fard, Wajib or Sunnah to listen to the person?

It is wajib to listen to the Qur’an when it is being recited. When the Quran is prayed loudly in a gathering then it is obligatory for all present to listen-if the reason for the gathering is to pray the Quran, otherwise if only one listens then it is sufficient regardless if others are busy in their work. (Guniyyah, Fatawa-e-Radawiyyah, Bahar-e-Shariat).

Similarly it is Wajib to listen and answer the call of Azaan, even the recitation of the Quran should be stopped.
