Salam alaykum shaykh Sajid.
Hope you are well. We have quite a lot paperwork that is not needed at our school which might have ahadith , verses of Quran etc .It’s not right to put in recycling bin is it? Can we shred them?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم،
الحمد لله، والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وعلى آله وأصحابه أجمعين…
Wa alaykumus Salam wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh.
May Allah bless you for writing in.
We have in our sources that which cites burning these sort of papers as acceptable, as per the practice of Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) after his efforts to standardise the copies of the mushaf (Qur’an in book form).
