Correct Disposal of Islamic and Qurani CDs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

As-salamu alaykum

I would like to enquire the correct disposal method of CDs and DVDs containing Islamic lectures and Quran recitations.



Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

As long as there is no sticker with Quranic verses or Allah’s name on the exterior, it will be permissible to dispose of the CD or DVD in any way that you prefer.

If the name of Allah or a Quranic verse is written on the exterior, then you will have to bury the CD or DVD.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
