Q. Is it permissible to have Quranic verses and phrases on one’s vehicle?
A. The Holy Quran contains the words of Allah and must be respected at all times. Placing these Quranic verses on vehicles is only a matter of fashion and style, and no sort of respect is given to these verses when they are placed in this manner. Instead, we see that a lot of dirtiness (which is on the vehicle) comes over these verses, no one pays attention to the sacredness of these verses, no one reflects on the message contained in these verses and in many cases, it is seen that music is played in many of these vehicles which contain these Quranic verses. It therefore shows that this act has become a ‘style’ and ‘fashion’ of the day, and Muslims must refrain from showing such disrespect to these Quranic verses.
And Allah knows best.
