Ruling on naming a Facebook page after a verse from the Qur’aan

Is it permissible to name a religious page on Facebook after a verse from the Qur’aan?.

Praise be to Allaah.

What is required is to respect and venerate the Qur’aan and not show disrespect to its verses by naming a place, website, page or a person after them, because Allah did not send down the Qur’aan for that purpose, and because that is exposing the Qur’aan to disrespect and being uttered in vain.

And Allah knows best.
