Carrying the mus’haf in your bag

Fatwaa ID: 577

Is it ok to carry a Arabic Quran in my backpack if it might be on the floor sometimes?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

The mus’haf deserves utmost respect and should be taken good care of. Nevertheless, it is permissible to carry the mus’haf in one’s backpack. It is carried there to keep it safe and protected. When carrying it there, one should try not to place the backpack on the floor. However, if it is placed on the ground, then that would not be regarded as disrespect.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
