Back to chapter

4ـ عَلِيٌّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنِ السَّكُونِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ الله (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) امْحُوا كِتَابَ الله تَعَالَى وَذِكْرَهُ بِأَطْهَرِ مَا تَجِدُونَ وَنَهَى أَنْ يُحْرَقَ كِتَابُ الله وَنَهَى أَنْ يُمْحَى بِالأقْلامِ.

4. Ali has narrated from his father from al-Nawfali from al-Sakuni from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘You may delete (writing of) the book of Allah, the Most High and words mentioning Him with the cleanest thing that you can find.’ He prohibited the burning of the book of Allah and to delete it with a pen.’”
