Is it allowed to hang Qu`anic Aayahs on the wall for decoration?
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:
is it allowed to hang Qu`anic Aayahs on the wall for decoration?

Hang quran on walls for decoration
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Although there is no specific evidence that the Messenger of Allah (saws) or his companions hung the Aayahs of the Glorious Quran in their homes for decoration or remembrance, the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that there is absolutely no harm if the hanging of such verses in a place of honor in their homes encourage them to read those Glorious Verses of the Quran, or enable or encourage them to remember their Lord and His Words.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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,
