Burning the worn-out pages of the Mus-haf

Q: Is it permissible to burn the newspaper after reading it? Is it permissible to burn the worn-out pages of the Mus-haf (copy of the Qur’an) that may be found in the streets?


A: Yes, it is permissible to burn newspapers, for they might contain some Ayahs (Qur'anic verses), Hadiths, or Islamic texts that must be respected and venerated. Likewise, it is permissible to burn the worn-out pages of the Mus-haf to preserve their sanctity and protect them from desecration. You can also protect them from violation by burying them in pure earth.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
