Disposing of worn-out copies of the Qur’an The second and third questions of Fatwa no. 21775 Q 2: How can one dispose of worn-out copies of the Mus-haf (Qur’an, the Book)? A: The worn-out copies of Mus-hafs should be burned or buried in a pure place, in order to protect it from desecration, as the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet, may Allah be pleased with them) (Part No. 3; Page No. 41) did with the copies of the Mus-haf they dispensed with, when the Mus-haf was transcribed in the time of ‘Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him).
