“What is the ruling in Islaam for those who swear by the Qur’an?”
Shaykh Muhammad al-Imam (حفظه الله):
“It is permissible to swear by the Noble Qur’an with the majority of the people of knowledge, because the Qur’an is the Speech of Allah and the Speech of Allah is an attribute from the attributes of Allah.
Some of the Salaf disliked swearing by the Noble Qur’an, however it is permissible, although it is more virtuous to swear by Allah from the Attributes of Allah (عز و جل). As the Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: ‘By the One in who’s hand is my soul (i.e. Allah عز و جل).’ This is better and more appropriate.”
