Typing with the letter ه instead of هـ

Q: Nowadays in the Apple Arabic keyboard, هـ is changed to ه. Consequently all quranic words are also changed. What should we do about this? Will the meaning of the Quran change with this?

A: This is incorrect. Just as it is important to preserve the pronunciation of the words similarly the exact letters of the Qur'aan must be preserved. To change and distort is not permissible.

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