Q.​Are we allowed to bring the Qur’aan, (the mus’haf) and put our hands on it as proof that we are telling the truth?

A.​The shaykh (hafidhahullaah) said that the sahaabah did not do this, so it is better not to do this. However, the Qur’aan is one of the attributes of Allaah azza wa jall and it is not a created thing, so if one were to swear by it, it is not swearing by a created thing and therefore it is not an act of shirk.

Shaykh Saalih Muhammad al-Luhaydaan (May Allaah preserve him) (Kitaab-ut-Tawheed Class, Q&A Session 08-08-2012, Riyadh)
