I wanted to ask a question regarding old cd’s in which you have Quran and bayaans or even such cd’s in which nasheeds have been included, so the question is that can we burn or somehow dispose of these cd’s as they are of no use due to having easy access to youtube etc…


As long as the cd’s don’t have any verses of the Quraan on them it will be permissible to dispose of them as you wish. If they have verses of the Quraan etc then they should be disposed of by being buried. (Bahishti Zewar, chapter of lawful and unlawful)
