What is the ruling on swearing by the Qur’aan and making Sujood for it?–Imaam Albaanee (rahimahullaah)

Answer:

The Qur’aan is the speech of Allaah, and the Speech of Allaah’s is an Attribute amongst His Attributes; so therefore, it is permissible to swear by the Qur’aan.  And if you regard making Sujood to the Qur’aan as (Sujood) to His Speech, then it is permission. As for making Sujood for the Mushaf (i.e. a written copy of the Qur’aan), then there is something in the Mushaf that is not from the Attributes of Allaah [i.e. the ink, the paper, the notes, the details of the publishers etc-(these are created things)] [Fataawah Al-Imaaraat: 6]
