How do I dispose of papers with Allah’s name on them?
If you have to dispose of papers or books that have Allah’s name on them, or Quranic verses, you may burn them, or shred them, as long as the shredding is fine and the name of Allah is not left in tact. You may also bury them. Throwing them in the recycling bin or other bin is not respectful or appropriate. May Allah help us to do what is good.
