Asalamualaikum
Does the Qur'an have to be on the utmost top shelf...? or is this just cultural?... I just think that I would read it more if I didnt have to get a stool to reach it each time.
If yes , then can the Qur'an be mixed with other books?
can you put dua books mixed with other books in the book shelf?

Asalamualaikum wrt,


All praise to Allah.


Honorable sister,


The pages of the Quran should be treated with respect, and thus many of the scholars indicate that one should not hold a Musshaf in a state of impurity, bring it in a bathroom, or travel with it to a place where it might be subjected to abuse or disrespect.  If its pages are damaged, they should be burned and buried in clean earth.

I do not know of any texts that indicate that the Quran must be in the highest place in the house.



And Allah knows best.


Shaykh Abdurahman

Assalamualaikum warahmatullah,

The text of the Quran is after all just a medium through which we can access it. As such there aren't obligations for it regarding its positioning in the house, whatever is done by an individual is his/her own mark of respect for it. If you think about it, the text of the Quran can exist in different forms in this day and age...for instance Quranic CDs.

In a lot of cultures, people also kiss the Quran, which is also a mark of respect but not obligatory.

Wassalam,

peace be upon you

The Quran is the word of Allah, and has His names in it. We should indeed show respect to His word and His names. The Quran need not be in the top shelf if you have difficulty accessing it, but it should be the topmost in a pile of books. It should be covered so that impure hands do not touch it.

As for dua books, yes,there is no reason why other books cannot be mised with these. But again, it is preferable that they be either separate or on top, for they contain Allah's names.

and Allah knows best.

salaam

    Some scholars are of the view that the Quran should be elevated, based on the ayat is Surah Abasa,
"Elevated Purified". Here is a copy of a legal ruling from one of our noble scholars. 

    And Allah knows.


 salaam

May Allah increase you in knowledge.

Asalamualaikum wrt,


Thank you Shaikh for the nice Fatwa.  But you forgot to translate it Smiley



"The Ruling of Placing the Mushaf (Quran) on the Ground"


It is best to place it in a raised place, so as to fulfill the letter and spirit of the verse in Surah 'Abasa (referring to the Quran) "Elevated, Purified"

So when you need to put it down, put it somewhere raised, if even slightly.  If that is not easy, then it is permissible to place it on the ground on clean bedding and the like, but one must avoid placing it in a low place, or on impurities, or on bare earth, because that is belittling it.

And if you must put it down on some bedding, that is ok as long as one is careful to keep the Quran raised in both letter and spirit.


-Shaykh Ibn Jibreen



Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

Yes I was always told if the Quran falls or somhow lands in the carpet or most lowest place you HAVE to kiss it. So then this is just cultural?

Asalamualaikum wrt,


It has been reported that some of the pious predecessors used to kiss the Quran and show a great deal of respect for it.

From this Imam as-Suyuti said it is permissible to kiss the Holy Qur'an, also drawing an analogy with the black stone in the Ka'bah.


With regard to those who say that you have to offer expiation for dropping the Quran by kissing it, he has to produce evidence for that, because it is not permissible to impose something upon the people without sound evidence. Whoever imposes something on people that was not enjoined by Allah has ordained something in the religion for which Allah has not given leave. It is not permissible to invent expiations for sins and to specify their type and number without evidence from sharee’ah.


And Allah knows best.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

Its respect to Quran Al Kareem. I dont know, could we say its cultural?


I saw at some homewalls, There is very nice handmadecover for Quran(specialy girls do it before they get married, so nice Sajjadahs and Covers for Quran, but realy use them in right way???) and hang on the wall but if u want read, you need something under your feeds to take from there. Because it hangs on highest place.
Quran isnt no send for accessories for home and also not only read time to time for deathmuslims... The best respect is when we live Quran in our live.
If am writing wrong its my fault..Am sory...Salam Alaikum

But is there any hadith indicating that the Prophet (peace be upon him) kissed the Quran? If there isn't, I'm not sure we should be doing it. Remember the incident when Umar (RA) kissed the Black Stone and said to "No doubt, I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit nor harm anyone. Had I not seen Allah's Apostle kissing you I would not have kissed you." 

So if there is no account in which the Prophet or one of the four Righteous Caliphs, or even one of the pther companions of the Prophet kissed the Quran, are we right in doing so? Obviously there is no harm is kissing it out of respect but innovations build out of the smallest things.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.

 Asalamualaikum wrt wb,


All praise be to Allah.


The great Hanbali Faqih (jurist) and Mujtahid (high scholar) Sheikh Abdul-`Azeez Ibn Baaz (may Allah bless his soul), stated:

“I do not know of any evidence to indicate that kissing the Qur'an is prescribed in Shari`ah, but if a person does it, there is nothing wrong with that. It is narrated that the great companion `Ikrimah Ibn Abi Jahl (may Allah be pleased with him) used to kiss the Qur'an, and he used to say, “This is the speech of my Lord.”

Anyway, there is nothing wrong with kissing the Qur'an, but it is not prescribed to do so and there is nothing to indicate that it is prescribed in Shari`ah. Therefore, if a person kisses it as an act of veneration and respect if it falls from his/her hand or from a high place, there is nothing wrong with that, insha'Allah.”

(Source: Sheikh Ibn Baz’s Fatawa wa Maqaalaat Mutanawwi`ah, vol. 9, p. 289)



And Allah knows best.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.
