Kissing the Mushaf isn’t Bida’.

Posted by muhammedm on June 21, 2010

أبدأُ بالحمدِ مُصَلِّياً على مُحمَّدٍ خَيِر نبيْ أُرســـــِلا

Without going into detail of what the ulema have said, I’ll quote few narrations regarding the issue. This is another error of our brethren who are quick to label something as bida’, had they only read.
1 – “It’s reported on the authority of Sayyidina ‘Umar (Allah ta’ala be pleased with him) that he would take the Mushaf every morning, and kiss it”
2 – “Sayyidina Uthman (Allah ta’ala be pleased with him) would kiss the Mushaf and pass it over his face”
3 – Imam Nawawi in Tibyan on page 123 narrates, “we narrate in the Musnad of Imam Darami with an authentic chain on the authority of Ibn Abi Mulayka that he said, “Sayyidina Ikrama bin Abi Jahl would put the Mushaf on his face and say, “My Lord’s Book, My Lord’s Book.”

Wa ‘alaykumus Salam
