If one accidentally drops a Mushaf, is it an etiquette to take it and kiss it showing our apologies? This is prevalent in our place, sometimes the Mushaf is passed around for everyone in the vicinity to either directly kiss or touch and kiss it. What do we do actually in such a situation? May Allah reward you with goodness.
The Scholars say that kissing the Mushaf is an innovation since none of the Companions did it. If you drop it unwillingly, just take it quickly and say astaghfirullah but don’t kiss it
