Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
People often write the date of special occasions and a few words on Mus-hafs when giving them as gifts. Is this permissible?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
It is permissible if the Mus-haf is intended as a gift. One can write “This is a gift to So and so on the occasion of such and such.” There is no reason why this should not be allowed, in sha Allaah. Or if a person wants to a book as a gift and he writes in it, whether in his own handwriting or that is printed in the book, this is OK.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
