Is it allowed to keep the Holy Quran in the bedroom, where husband and wife sleep?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Thanks for your e-mail messages containing questions and answers in light of
Holy Quran and Authentic Hadees. May Allah Ta'aala give you Ajr for your
selfless services for the cause of Deene Islam and guiding Ummah.
Here are my two questions:
- Is it allowed for women to trim eyebrows and have facial update?
- Is it allowed to keep the Holy Quran in the bedroom, where husband and wife sleep? (The Holy Quran, after reciting, is kept in the cabinet with its doors locked, so it is not visible, when not being recited. The cabinet is kept on the floor of the bedroom.)
Thanks very much.

Keep Quran in Bedroom
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Q-1: Is it allowed for women to trim eyebrows and have facial update?
Sahih Al-Bukhari 7.815 Narrated by Abdullah
Allah has cursed those women who practice tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those who remove their eye-brow hairs, and those who create a space between their teeth artificially to look beautiful, and such women as change the features created by Allah. Why then should I not curse those whom the Prophet (saws) has cursed?
As it is not in the general nature of the womenfolk to have facial hair, there is absolutely no harm in having a facial update if they wish to do so; but the believing woman should fear Allah and not remove, shape, or interfere in anyway with her eye-brows.
Q-2: Is it allowed to keep the Holy Quran in the bedroom, where husband and wife sleep? (The Holy Quran, after reciting, is kept in the cabinet with its doors locked, so it is not visible, when not being recited. The cabinet is kept on the floor of the bedroom.)
There is absolutely no harm if a copy of the Glorious Quran in kept in ones bedroom or any other room, regardless of whether the Quran is exposed on a shelf or enclosed in a cabinet. The only place in the house where obviously a Quran should not be kept is in the toilets or the bathrooms.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
