Storage of the Quraan

28 Sep 2021 Ref-No#: 3618

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Regarding this fatwa: #3445

If there is a shelf that is from the roof until around a person’s head height with a few shelves, will it be ok to keep the quraan on the shelf that is at a person’s height, rather than the top shelf (the top shelf cannot be reached when standing on the ground)?

جزاك الله خيرا

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salām wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,

It is best to place the Qurān in the highest shelve that you can easily reach. Since you mentioned that the higher shelf cannot be reached whilst standing on the ground, it will be correct to place the Qurān on this shelf which reaches till the height of the head.
