Question: Are there times in the day one should not perform recital of Qur’an, just as there are times one should not offer optional Salah?

Recitation of Qur’an is permitted throughout each and every day, even during the times when optional prayers are prohibited. The only consideration to be made is regarding the prostration of recitation as some scholars (Hanafi persuasion, etc.) prohibit prostration during the times that prayer is prohibited. The majority of scholars do not find anything wrong in reciting Qur’an at any time as the hadith texts relating to prohibited times of worship only refer to salah. If reciting Qur’an had been intended, it would have been clearly stated.
