Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

It is from the quality of a believer that he has the utmost respect for the name of Allāh and his Prophet (Sallallāhu ‘Alayhi Wasallam). The cloth which contains the name of Allāh and his Prophet (Sallallāhu ‘Alayhi Wasallam) deserves to be respected and should be utilized in a manner in which no disrespect is shown. It may be used as a cover to for the Qur’ān or other religious books.

As for the few times it was used as a normal cloth, then this was not done intentionally. Nevertheless, seek repentance to Allāh for whatever disrespect that might have occurred.

And Allah knows best
