What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Is it permissible to place the Qur’ān over the head of the bride at the time of giving her away because here in the U.K. a father does this when giving his daughter away, and how is to consider this as a good omen?
Questioner: Shafinah from UK

It is permissible to place the Qur’ān over the head of one’s daughter, sister, etc at the time of giving her away, and it also correct to consider this as a good omen, in the sense that I am giving away my daughter/sister while her being under the shade of the Qur’ān, due to which may she remain protected from any future misfortunes & worries. This is because it is permissible to consider things as a good omen, but it is prohibited to consider things as a bad omen.
