QUESTION:

I have been using a Mussallah for a long time. Now it is so worn down that
I think it needs rest. I would like you to tell me how I can get rid of it
in a very Islamic way. 

There are no arabic inscriptions on the prayer mat. From what I can make
out there is a picture of some mosque and next to it is the Kaaba. The
borders are decorated with some designed lines..There are no names
whatsoever.


ANSWER:

The Islamic perspective indicates that things which are sacred and holy are 
to be treated with great respect. 

In order to preserve the sanctity of and not to exhibit disrespect to the
Ka'ba, it is better to dispose the musallah in a way which would not show
any contempt or violate it's sanctity e.g by burying it in the ground. 


And Allah knows best.

Liyakatali
