Giving The Quraan To a Christian

If a Christian asks me for a copy of the Quraan, should I give it to him?

You should not give it to him, you should read the Quraan to him, let him hear it, call him to Allaah and pray that Allaah guides him for the saying of Allaah Ta’aalah in his Book:

{And if anyone of the Mushrikoon (polytheists) seeks your protection then grant him protection so that he may hear the Word of Allaah (the Qur-aan) and then escort him to where he can be secure…} [At Tawbah: 6]

Also for the saying of the Messenger:

“Do not travel with the Quraan to the lands of the enemies so that they do not touch it.”

This proves that a non-Muslim is not to be given a copy of the Qur-aan for fear that he will degrade/demean or fool around with it. But he should be taught, the Quraan should be read to him , he is to be advised and Du’aa (supplication) is to be made for him. If he accepts Islaam then he is to be given a copy of the Qur-aan.

There is no problem in giving him a book of Tafseer, a book of Hadeeth or a translation of the meanings of the Qur-aan if he wants to benefit from that.
