The proper disposal of worn-out Mus-hafs

Q 2: How can one dispose of worn-out Mus-hafs (copies of the Qur'an)?

A: The worn-out Mus-hafs should be burned or buried in a pure place in order to protect them from desecration, as the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet, may Allah be pleased with them) (Part No. 3; Page No. 41) did with the copies they dispensed with when the Mus-haf was transcribed in the time of `Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him).
