Cat sleeping on the Qur’an

Q: My cat fell asleep on top of the Qur’an Shareef and other Deeni kitaabs. Please advise on what I should do in this instance. Is it necessary to awaken and move the cat?


A: Immediately you should remove the cat as this amounts to disrespect being shown to the Qur’an Shareef and the kitaabs of Deen.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
