My question is now it is commonly observed that Muslim youth are downloading Quran, Surah, Kalimah, hadith, bayan, Islamic images with the name of Allah and Hadhrat Muhammad (SAW), Qaul etc from Islamic websites hearing it and forwarding to their contacts. A person who receives it reads it, sees it and deletes. (1) Is downloading the holy Quran, hadith and other dini things from web sites allowed or it is bida’h? (2) Is deleting of hadith and Quranic verses acceptable? (3) Are images with the name of Allah and the holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) on mobile screen allowed?

(1) It is lawful provided they are not desecrated.
(2) It is not right to download or delete unnecessarily. However, there is no harm if you delete it when required.
(3) It is unlawful to store prohibited pictures.
