Fataawa al-Lajnah ad-Daa.imah lil-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wal-Iftaa. – Question 12 of Fatwa No.4172

Question: I have seen amongst the people that which I have never heard of nor seen before and that is kissing the Qur.aan as [one sees] two men kissing each other [out of brotherly love].

Response: All Praise is for Allaah, the One, and prayers and salutations upon His Messenger, his family and his companions. To proceed:

We do not know of any basis for a man to kiss the Qur.aan.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet ﷺ and his family and his companions.
