|Someone said that kissing quran is an innovation? What is the correct ruling?
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
It is permissible to kiss the Quran out of love and respect or to seek blessings (tabarukk) from it. It has been narrated that Saaiduna Umar Radiallahu Anhu used to kiss the quran every morning. Similarly, Saaiduna Uthmaan Radiallahu Anhu used to kiss the Quran and wipe the Quran over his face.
