I know there are similar questions here but I couldn't find a satisfactory answer anywhere to this simple question. Please send me a link if there exists a similar question.

Quran is an eternal word of God which is uncreated, that I know but, For example, if a non-Muslim burns a copy of the Quran, he has burnt the Quran itself or a copy of the Quran composed of pages & letters written via pen/ink?

How is the majority opinion that Quran is uncreated even in books according to the answers here ??

    You can't burn the qur'an as the qur'an is the orally transmitted word of Allah- What you find between two bookshelves is not the qur'an, but a Moshaf. And you will find plenty of answers saying so.

    @Medi1Saif "You can't burn the qur'an as the qur'an is the orally transmitted word of Allah"... When a Hafidh is gone from this world, does that mean the Quran is also gone with him/her or it still remains ??

  • @Ghz... what logic is that? Of course the qur'an will remain.

  • @Medi1Saif What do you mean when you say "Quran is the orally transmitted word of Allah" and "What you find between two bookshelves is not the Quran but a Moshaf" ?

Qur'an itself is not created; it is the words that Allah had spoken. Perhaps this idea started from the Mushaf being something solid and toucheable. I might find the link where I learned this but I don't promis anything. It's very reliable but i dont know where it is. if i find it i will send it here. Salam Alaykom

The Quran, as in the words of Allah, are not created.

As for the paper and ink, they are created. The voice of a person that is reciting is created.

But, what is written and what is recited are the words of God which are uncreated.

If a non-Muslim burns a book, he burns a book. But, the Quran still exists.

    "If a non-Muslim burns a book (Quranic Mushaf), he burns a book. But, the Quran still exists.". So, the Quran which we read in Mushafs is not the real Quran?

  • If he burns a book, he is not burning what is written, only the medium or place of writing

  • What is written in the mushaf is the Qur'an, the speech of Allah
