Hanging Quran verses

Home / Miscellaneous / Hanging Quran verses


Can you please tell me what is the ruling of hanging ayaat from Quran on the wall or in the car, etc? Even if you know it does not protect you unless you sincerely read from the authentic ayaat and authentic supplications. May Allah bless you.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

The Scholars say that this is not allowed because the Quran was revealed in order to learn it and act according to it, not to put the verses on the walls and not to put a Mushaf for example in the car for protection or blessing.

Also putting verses on the wall or putting Quran words on a pendant you wear is similar to the amulets (التمائم), and similar to Christians wearing a cross.

Quran has to be respected and dealt with according to the purpose Allah revealed it for.
