In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the most Merciful.

1. Wuḍūʾ is not required unless one is touching the text of the Qurʾān on the screen. However, adab (good etiquette) entails one should be in the state of wuḍūʾ when reciting the Qurʾān.

2. Wuḍūʾ is not required in this case, however, it is better to be in the state of wuḍūʾ.

3.Wudūʾ is not required for reciting durūd and making duʿāʾ.

And Allah knows best
