Is it better to burn or bury worn-out Mus-hafs?

Q 6: Is it better to burn or bury the Mus-hafs (copies of the Qur’an) that contain typographical mistakes? Is a Mus-haf considered to be incorrect if the Surahs (Qur’anic chapters) are not in the correct order?

A: Firstly, it is obligatory to correct any misprint, if this is possible, to preserve the Qur’an and prevent money being wasted. However, if it is not possible to correct the mistakes, the publication should be stopped and all available copies should be destroyed either by burning or burying. Secondly, it is wrong to arrange the Surahs in a Mus-haf out of their correct order. This is Haram (prohibited).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
