Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Please tell me the proper method for disposal of Allah’s and Prophets’ names.

Also is it permissible to give such pages for recycling? Also can we throw them out after blacking the names out with a marker?


A: You should preferably bury them in a spot on which people don’t tramp. Otherwise, you may burn them.

Don’t throw them away. Instead, either bury them or burn them.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
