Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Kamran Abid
Is making a mark with a pencil on a verse or page on the Qur’an for identification permissible?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Allah (SWT) mentions in the Holy Qur’an, “If one observes the sanctity of the symbols of Allah, then such things emanate from the piety of the hearts.”.
From the above verse of the Quran, we understand that anything that would dishonour the Quran would not be permissible. Making a mark with a pencil on a page of the Qur’an is permissible because it is not disrespectful to the sanctity of the Qur’an.
Only Allah knows best
