Writing names on Mus-hafs is permissible


People often write the date of special occasions and a few words on Mus-hafs when giving them as gifts. Is this permissible?.


Praise be to Allah.

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.
