What Shall I Do With A Ripped Copy of The Noble Qur’aan?
I have with me a copy of the Noble Qur’aan and its pages are ripped, so what shall I do with it? Shall I bury it?
It is permissible for you to bury it under the grounds of a Masjid of any of the Masaajid; and it is also permissible for you to burn it in imitation of what ‘Uthmaan (radiyallaahu-anahu) did. And to Allaah belongs all success, and may peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad (salla Allaahu alaihi wa sallam), his family and his companions. [Al-Lajnaa ad-daa-imah – Al fataawaa al Hassaan fee ahkaam wa aadaab wa fadaa-il al Qour’aan p.115]
