r the first time, someone who is simply interested in the faith which claims over two billion followers worldwide, or a researcher, educator, student or writer, this website presents authoritative Islamic Answers to Questions about Islam from both Muslims and non-Muslims.

DISRESPECT TO THE NOBLE QUR'AN

Hadhrat Úmar (Radhiallaahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'Allah exalts many people by means of this book (Qur'an) and He also degrades and disgraces many others by means of the same.' (Muslim)

Hadhrat Jaabir (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'The Qur'an is such an interceder whose intercession is accepted, and a disputant whose dispute is upheld. Whoever keeps it in front of him, it draws him to Jannat, and whoever puts it behind his back, it hurls him into Jahannam.'

In the light of the above Ahaadith, we learn that the position of the Noble Qur'an is exceptionally high by Allah Ta'aala. Therefore, it is essentially important for Muslims to show full respect, love and devotion for the Noble Qur'an. Insha Allah, in doing so Allah Ta'aala will elevate us in this world and in the Hereafter.

It is mentioned that once a person who was a great sinner had found a piece of paper on the floor on which an Aayaat of the Qur'an Majeed was written. He picked it up and showed respect to it. Allah Ta'aala was so pleased with this act in showing respect to His words that Allah Ta'aala forgave him.

Unfortunately, today the true love and respect for the words of Allah Ta'aala is lacking. We notice today that countless number of pamphlets with Qur'anic Aayaats are distributed as though they were some cheap cinema handbills, which so often end up on pavements, or filthy public toilets. Collection tins with Qur'anic Aayaats are placed in Kuffaar shops and handled by them. Muslims are prohibited from touching even one Aayaat of the Noble Qur'an without Tahaarah but alas the words of Allah Ta'aala have now become a cheap calendar decoration which after one year is thrown into the bins.

We earnestly plead to all Muslims, "Please do not print, buy or sell stickers, booklets, calendar pamphlets, etc. with Qur'anic Aayaats on them as we will be assisting in showing disrespect to the words of Allah Ta'aala."

May Allah make the Noble Qur'an a means of our guidance and make it an interceder in our favour on the day of Qiyaamat, Aameen.
