Ask an Alim



salaam alaykum,
thank you for a wonderful service.
I would like to ask how can we discard rightfully (do not get gunah), those materials where the name of God , the prophets or masumeen have been mentioned or even torn pages of holy Qur’an , understanding that throwing just like that would be a disrespect .
kindly assist , and mention if there are alternative options.


There are few options that a person can opt:

1. Get it buried

2. To throw in a sea or a river (pollution and other governmental issues to be taken under consideration)

3. Using paper cutting machine to change its original form

NOTE: There could be other options as well and the bottom line is that it should not be considered as a disrespect.
