Is it permissible for the sake of the remembrance of Allah, to stick verses of the Quran in front of my desk in order to help me and remind me while I’m studying? I also have the Shahadah on my house door, so I don’t forget to say it when I come in and out. This allows me to engage in remembrance of Allah (dhikr).
Zaynab El- Kateb:
Sheikh Salih Al Fawzan answered to a similar question saying that by placing the Quran on walls or desks we degrade its value. It should be kept in the Mushaf and in our hearts, therefore we shouldn’t do it even if our intention is good. The Pious Predecessors (salafus saleh) never did this.
