Disposing of novels and magazines


1. How should one dispose of novels, like romance and horror stories, ‘Harry Potter’ etc.?

2. How should one dispose of magazines like ‘National Geographic’ that contain many images of animate objects like animals? I am unsure if it is necessary to burn these types of literature, or if tearing and throwing them away is sufficient.


A: Magazines and books that are misleading and confusing should be destroyed. The easiest way is to tear it and throw it in the garbage.

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