It should be read in a way that others don’t get disturbed or annoyed. Quran must be read with proper understanding, since it is the guidance for the whole of humanity. Without understanding, it is not possible to follow the teachings properly. When reciting Quran one should strive to recite in a beautiful voice.
The etiquettes and respect for Quran is also keeping the book in a clean and decent environment. Before touching or reading, a person should perform ablution. Cloths of a person should be clean from impurities. One must not be in a state of intoxication while reading Quran.
