Disposing of Islamic Literature

Q. Mufti Saab I have my note books with Ayaath and ahaadith, as I will be moving I’m unable to take them with me, I live in an apartment and they don’t allow to burn as I’m concerned if I just leave them it will be a cause of disrespect. If I throw in the sea, I don’t know what will happen as I live in a non Muslim country. What can I do? And I have collected Allah’s name from every invitation we get,what’s to be done with all this? Jazakallah 

A. In the enquired case, you should try to find a suitable place whereupon people do not commonly walk to bury your notes and invitation cards etc., which contain verses of the Quran and Ahadith. You should not leave it in a place where it is possible that it may be handled by non-Muslims. (Shaami 1/177).

Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
