Placing a Copy of the Qur’aan next to a baby to protect him/her from the Jinn
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
What is your view O noble Shaykh regarding a woman who places a copy of the Qur’aan next to her small baby intending protection from the Jinn, whilst she is either busy or when she leaves him by himself?
This is not permissible, because in this is a belittlement of the Noble Mushaf. Also it is not a legislated act.
