The Mushaf of the al-Quran, the Holy Book of Muslims must be respected whether it is new or no longer in use. However, the awareness in respecting the mushaf among Muslim community is more focused on the new mushaf. There were cases where the old mushaf were disposed in cattle sheds and recycling centres owned by non Muslims or left abandoned and scattered on the road. The main objective of this study is to identify the compliance level of the Muslim community on the methods of disposal of the mushaf according to Islamic law, to identify factors that affect the level of compliance, to identify disposal practices carried out by the implementing agencies and to analyze the challenges faced by the implementing agencies in carrying out the disposal of the Quran in Malaysia. This study applied quantitative and qualitative methods. Questionnaires were distributed to 405 respondents and analyzed using SPSS version 19 and interviews and observations on four implementing agencies were conducted and data obtained were analyzed using NVivo version 10. The findings of the survey found that the level of compliance with of the Muslim community regarding disposal methods of the mushaf are in line with Shariah and is moderately high. Five factors that affect the level of compliance are namely the solution (P), risk (R), the disposal process (PP), culture and awareness (PK) and financial resources (SK). The study also discovered that tools used to dispose the mushaf are through burning using incinerators, furnaces, portable drum machine and barrel. Furthermore, the study showed six major challenges faced by the implementing agencies are namely, the high-cost of management, special disposal place, fuel, disposal period, enforcement and labour.
