Sometimes we have reading materials in
Islam that we need to dispose. Some of them contain verses of the Qur'an in English. Some
of them also has the word "Allah" in english. Please advise me on how to dispose
them. JAzak Allahu Khairan
Praise be to Allaah.
These papers can be put to good use by giving them to
people who can benefit from them, or placing them in a library for that purpose.
If that is not possible, or the papers are not suitable for that
purpose, then they may be destroyed by burning or by cutting them up so that the verses of
the Quraan and the name of Allaah disappear, or they may be buried. If a few words
remain there is no harm in that. There are machines that cut paper into long, thin strips
(i.e., shredders), which may be used for this purpose. May Allaah help us and you to do
all that is good.
