salaam 'alaykum,

What is the Zaydi view on the proper disposal of pages and writing wherein there are sacred names written, such as Allah and his names (ar-Rahman, etc), or the names of prophets and holy figures. Likewise, what of the proper disposal of pages that have ayat written on them, or even mushafs? The Sunni ruling is to burn them, while the Imami view forbids this, rather says they are to be buried or put in a body of water, or effaced in some complete manner if I remember correctly, but definitely not burned.

Wa alaykum as salaam.

After referring to one of our ulema, he said that there is no problem with any of the two actions (i.e. burning or burying) as long as offense or insult is not intended by either.

And Allah knows best!
