Asalamualaikum can a cat step on the Qur’an


My cat stepped on the Qur’an and people are telling me I will get gunnah for this


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your question

Qur’an is certainly a Holy book and one should be careful of where s/he is placing it. But, when it comes to things that are out of your hands then you are not liable to that certain thing. Say you placed your Quran on a table and your cat still went on it. Then it’s quiet understandable that you had placed the the Qur’an in an appropriate place. What’s important is that a person should be careful as to how and where he is placing the Qur’an

And Allah knows best
