Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalamu Alaikum Burhan Bhai,
I hope you are fine.
What is the recommended way to save the name written on such placed.
Is it appropriate to burn it, or throw in lake/river, or what if the name wording is torned into pieces so that it is no longer left as a proper single word ?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Prophet name in newspapers etc
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The best way to honorably dispose off unwanted prints of the Aayahs of the Quran, or the names of Allah and His Messenger (saws) found in books, newspapers, etc. is either to burn them bury them. If one throws them in the lakes, rivers, or seas there is a possibility that the pages might resurface on some land and someone may unintentionally dishonor them.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
