Give quran to non muslim
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Your Question: ….my main question is that i have a christian colleague who is more like a missionary and we are having lot of discussion regarding our faith and one`s in our discussion he ask me to give him a QURAN as he like to read it but my worry is that he is not clean as per the islamic law and may be he will not be taking care of QURAN as we muslim do so pls guide me in this regard
One of the absolute best ways to invite a disbeliever to the Truth of Islam is to give them a copy of the translation of the Glorious Quran in the language they understand best. The Messenger of Allah (saws) himself wrote some verses from the Glorious Quran in the letters he (saws) sent with his emissaries to the various disbelieving leaders surrounding Arabia in his efforts to invite them to the Truth of Al-Islam.
The guidance and condition of touching the Glorious Quran only when one is pure is applicable only for the believers, not for the disbelievers. The scholars and the jurists in Islam are unanimous in their opinion that there is absolutely no harm if one gives a copy of the Glorious Quran to their disbelieving brethren in their efforts to invite them to the Truth of Islam. And Allah Alone Knows Best.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185:
Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent
down: this Book is a Perfect Guidance
for mankind and consists of clear Teachings which show the
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verse 70:
And leave alone those who have taken their ‘deen’ as a sport and past-time, and have been deluded by the life of this world. Nevertheless, you go on admonishing them by reciting the Quran to them, lest any person should be seized because of his own deeds; and that too, at a time, when there would be no protector, no helper and no intercessor to rescue him from Allah; when no conceivable amount of ransom would be accepted from him. This is because such people shall be seized, in consequence of what they themselves had earned.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 19 Surah Maryam verse 97:
O Mohamed, We have made this Quran easy, and sent it down in your tongue so that you should give good news to the pious and warn the stubborn people.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 82:
Do they (the disbelievers) not ponder over the Quran? Had it been from any other than Allah, surely there would have been many contradictions in it.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 157-158:
Now that a clear proof, a Guidance and Blessing, has come to you from your Lord, who can be more unjust than the one who treats Our Revelations as false and turns away from them? We will inflict the severest torment on those who turn away from Our Revelations because of their aversion. Do the people now await that the angels should come down before them? Or that your Lord may Himself come down? Or that the manifest Signs of your Lord should appear?
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 14 Surah Ibrahim verses 1-2:
This is a Book which We have sent down to you (O Prophet) that you may bring mankind, by the help of their Lord, out of the dark ways (of ignorance) into the Light (of knowledge), to the Way of that Lord, Who is All Powerful, and inherently All Praiseworthy, and the Owner of whatever is in the heavens and the earth.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 44:
We sent the former Messengers with clear signs and Books, and now We have sent the Admonition to you (O Prophet), so that you should make plain and explain to the people the teachings of the Book, which has been sent for them, and so they should (themselves) ponder over it.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 20 Surah Taha verse 113:
Thus have We sent this down as an Arabic Quran, and have given therein warnings in various ways; so that they may be saved from perverseness, or that this may help arouse understanding in them.
In light of the guidance of the above quoted evidence from the Glorious Quran it is evident that the Quran is not for the believers alone, but its guidance is for all of mankind in general.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
