Writing Qur’anic Verses on Utensils for Treatment Purposes



Is it allowed to write Qur‘anic verses, such as Al-Kursi Ayah, on utensils for treatment purposes?



We must be fully aware that Allah‘s Book has such dignity and pride that it must not be undermined by having it written on such things. How can a believer be at ease as Qur‘anic verses, particularly, its greatest Ayah, are written on utensils to be thrown around and played with?! What a degrading position!


Indeed this is not to be allowed. If you have such utensils with Qur‘anic writings, you must have them erased. If they cannot be erased, they have to be buried in a clean place. This is safer than having Qur‘anic verses degraded, even if the intention is seeking cure.

It has never been reported that the good Salaf – may Allah be pleased with them – did such writings.

      No brother. I have not come across any such incident in Authentic hadeeth or in the lives of Salaf as Saalih.

      wa anta fajazakAllahu khair
