    How to get Rid of Unwanted Islamic Literature?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How does one get rid of unwanted religious literature, such as religious books, leaflets with the name of Allah, etc? Also, please state the ruling on what should be done to the copies of Qur’an that are no longer in a useable state:

    In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

    With regards to getting rid of unwanted religious and Islamic literature, the great classical Hanafi jurist (faqih), Imam al-Haskafi (Allah have mercy on him) states:

    “Books that are no longer benefited from, one should wipe away the names of Allah, His Angels, and His Messengers, and burn the rest. There is also nothing wrong with casting them into a flowing river as they are (i.e. without wiping away those names) or burying them, and this (burying them) is better.” (Radd al-Muhtar ala al-Durr al-Mukhtar, 5/271)

    Thus, if one decides to dispose of religious literature, the best thing would be to bury it by wrapping it in something pure first, in a place where people would not normally walk. It would also be permitted to tie the books and papers with something heavy and cast them into a flowing river. Alternatively, the literature may be burnt, but in this case, only after erasing the names of Allah, His Angels and His Messengers.

    Disposing Unusable Copies of the Qur’an

    As far as old and unusable copies of the Qur’an are concerned, it is not permitted to burn them unless there is no other way to dispose of them.

    The great Hanafi Imam, Imam Ibn Abidin (may Allah have mercy on him) states:

    “If a copy of the Mushaf (qur’an) becomes old and it is difficult to read from it, it should not be burnt in fire. This is what Imam Muhammad (m: student of Imam Abu Hanifa) pointed out and this is what we take. It will not be disliked to bury it. It should be wrapped in a pure cloth, and a Lahd grave (m: grave that has a incision in the side wall, customary in hot climate countries where the earth is solid) should be dug, because if a Shiq grave (m: grave with a straight opening, common in cold climate countries due to the earth being soft) is dug and the copy of the Qur’an is buried, it will entail the soil falling on top of the Qur’an which is a form of disrespect, unless a slab is placed as a roof…” (Radd al-Muhtar, 5/271)

    In light of the above, there are two methods of disposing of an unusable copy of the Qur’an:

    1) Wrapping it in a pure piece of cloth and burying it respectfully in a place where people (normally) do not walk about. In cold climate countries (such as the UK), one may dig a Shiq grave, but a slab should be placed first and over it the soil.

    2) Fastening the Qur’an with a heavy object like a stone and then placing it respectfully in flowing water.

    If one is able to implement the above two methods, it would not be permitted to burn the copy of the Qur’an. However, if the above two methods are difficult to carry out, then one may burn the Qur’an and bury or drown the resulting ash.

    And Allah knows best

          Aslamu Alikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Brakatoo,

          Mouhammad ibn Adam, I have burnt the Quranaic scripts, text and duas, as you have mentioned that burning Quran is Mbah when the names of Allah, Rasool and Angels are removed, I recently burnt these some Quranic text without whipping of the Allah names and Prophets, because I really don’t know about the names of Allah and Prophets should be whipped, I am really very worried when I heard it is not Jaeez, What should I do now.

          Please tell the best way for forgiveness of my deed.

            Re: how to dispose of islamic literature in a halal manner

            assalamu alaykum I have come across three ways of how to dispose scared text and scriptures, some say burn it, some say just bury it and others say place it in a river with the condition that it is following water NOT still. However as mentioned above names of Allah, Prophets and Angels need to be removed.
