Disposal of Quran Ayats

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is in the wrong section..

It is to my understanding that one should not burn any piece of paper that has Quran ayats on it. I asked someone on how should i dispose them instead his response was as follows

1) Bury them

2) drop it in the ocean/sea/river.

3) Recycle them

But it should not be Burnt!!

i looked around on the net a little bit and i found that one murja preferred Recycle method too. Is there any more concrete advice regarding this matter? like any Hadith? or sayings?

I have also present the same advice to the enemies of Quran but their claim is that "if there is any variance then it will be recalled and burnt the above three options are not viable".. It would be hard to convince someone with fatwas based on just shia murjas

Recycling seems to me to be an unacceptable method since you would have to place that piece of writing in a rubbish bin or such. Sayyid Seestani says:

583. Question: How could one go about dispensing with papers carrying the names of Allah or the Infallibles, as well as some loose pages of the Qur’an, when it is not possible for us to throw them in the sea or the river? That said, we do not know where would the garbage end up and what is done with it?

Answer: It is not permissible to put them in rubbish bins because that involves desecration and disrespect. However there is no problem in erasing the writings on the papers even by using some chemicals, burying them in a clean place or shredding them so that they turn into dust.

The hadiths on the matter all relate to the impermissibility of the desecration of the Qur'an and the names of the Infallibles. I do not have any hadiths at hand (perhaps others could post some) but these verses say:

Most surely it is an honored Quran, In a book that is protected, None shall touch it save the purified ones. [56:77-79]

Therefore it does not befit the honoured words of Allah (SWT) to be disrespected or desecrated, nor the Ahlulbayt (as) since they are the second of the Thaqalayn.

    • The Group in question which I will not even associate the word Islamic was a rabid dog that bit the hand that was feeding it believing it was strong enough to be in a dominant position. The Saudis were originally funding these Wahhabi monsters to cause chaos in a country that was recently invaded by the US in which the US accidentally helped Iran gain a even greater powerful presence in the region. The Saudis did not like these neither did the US, so with oil money from the US the Saudis started to fund these radical groups. When the group in question got too powerful they announced a Caliphate directly challenging the power of  Saudi Arabia which sees itself as the leader of the Islamic world. This was a good opportunity for this new self proclaimed Caliphate because with the civil in Syria and instability in Iraq they were able to spread extremely fast. Israel wants a divided Middle East and has been supporting these radical groups because Syria, Iraq and Iran challenge Israel’s war crimes against the Palestinians. Israel have even been accused of providing medical care and strategic bombing to help these terrorist groups which makes sense because Islamic State has been rather kind to Israel, no attacks, no indiscriminate killing...makes you wonder. The US won’t intervene until Assad is toppled that is clear their bombing campaign does nothing compared the the Russians in Syria and the US are the middle man funding groups like FSA who support Al Nusra who support Guess who?! Exactly the rabid dog in question. This is much of the same tactic as Saudi Arabia just wait until there is good enough damage done in eliminating Iranian influence and place puppets in charge.  
    • If you want to know what the conclusion of an article is, as well as the arguments, then generally yes you have to read it. Otherwise, I will summarize here, then you'll reply with something I already considered in the article, and it will take a very long and frustrating thread to get the point across. If you have the time to post several comments on this thread, then you have the time to read it. It takes less than a fifth of the time to read than it does to write.

      As for science, part 3 deals with that.
    • In every church. The commands are 3.000 years old, from a time when Israelis still were polytheists and sacrificed animals to Gods on hilltops. In my understandng the idol ban was not a ban on photograps or sculptures, but a ban on worshipping Baal and other semitic Gods. Only the God Jahwe was to be worshipped by the Israelis.   
    • isn't there "Jesus/god" on the cross in about every  church?
