Resolution No.(89) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:

"Ruling on the Decoration Stamped into the Cover of a Copy of the Noble Quran"

Date: 13/6/1426 AH, corresponding to 20/7/2005



We have received the following question:

What is the ruling of Sharia on the decoration stamped into the cover of a medium-size copy of the Noble Quran printed by Dar Al-Mahabbah?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

The Board has inspected the above decoration and found out that it resembles the cross. As a result, since Sharia stipulates that Islamic arts must reflect an Islamic theme, and represent only the views related to Islamic creed and the rulings of Islamic Sharia, the Board decided removing the above decoration from the cover of the mentioned copies of the Noble Quran. And Allah Knows Best.
