Placing a book with the name of Allah on the floor

Q: My brothers school notebook logo has Allah written on it. He's a child and he prefers to keep his books on the ground to work. The ground is covered with carpet. Will we be sinning if we keep the copy on the carpeted ground?

A: As a mark of respect, this book should be kept aside and he may be given a plain book to use.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
