The proper disposal of worn-out Mus-hafs

Q: How can any torn pages of the Mus-haf (copy of the Qur’an) or books containing Ayahs (Qur’anic verses) be safeguarded?

A: Any torn pages of the Mus-haf, or books, or pages carrying Ayahs should be buried in a good land away from pathways or places where rubbish and filth are disposed of. Another option would be to burn them in order to safeguard and protect them from any desecration or defilement. (Part No. 4; Page No. 139)  `Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) is reported to have done the second option.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
