How can I clean my Qur’an pages upon which drops of blood fell and I immediately wiped them off but the blood stains remained?


Blood fell on a few pages of my Quran. I wiped it off immediately, however, the stain is still left there, and if I use water, the pages will rip? What should I do to make it Islamically Paak (clean)?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

As-salaamu `alaykum wa-ramatullahi wa-barakatuh.

The pages will be considered paak (clean) after wiping the blood.[1]

And Allah Ta`ala Knows Best.

المحيط البرهاني في الفقه النعماني (1/ 195)

وإزالتها إن كانت مرئية بإزالة عينها وأثرها إن كانت شيئاً يزول أثرها ولا يعتبر فيه العدد، وإن كان شيئاً لا يزول أثرها فإزالتها بإزالة عينها ويكون ما بقي من الأثر عفواً، وإن كان كثيراً، وإنما اعتبرنا زوال العين


بيانه: أن المرأة إذا خضبت يدها أو رأسها بحناء نجسة، لو شرطنا زوال الأثر لثبوت الطهارة تقاعدت عن الصلاة أياماً كثيرة، وفيه من الحرج ما لا يخفى، وكذلك الرجل إذا صبغ ثوبه بصبغ نجس لو شرطنا زوال الأثر لثبوت الطهارة لتقاعد عن الصلاة إذا لم يكن له إلا هذا الثوب، وإنه قبيح.
