Book Buring says unless a player has Book Burning deal 6 damage to him or her, put the top 6 cards of target players library into his or here graveyard. my question is what dose it mean by has dose it mean in your hand or deck or in your graveyard?
Book Burning.

That's not what it says. You have to stop adding mental punctuation. The errata should explain it all:

Any player may have Book Burning deal 6 damage to him or her. If no one does, put the top six cards of target player's library into his or her graveyard.

"That's what's so stupid about the whole magic thing, you know," Rincewind said. "You spend twenty years learning the spell that makes nude virgins appear in your bedroom, and then you're so poisoned by quicksilver fumes and half-blind from reading old grimoires that you can't remember what happens next."

- Terry Pratchett, The Colour Of Magic

This "has" doesn't mean "owns, possesses".

What the card is trying to say is: Any player may allow Book Burning deal 6 damage to him or her. If no player allows this, Book Burning makes the targeted player put the top 6 cards from the library into the graveyard.
