Carrying the Qur’aan to the bathroom so that it will not be stolen

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I always carry a Quran with me, no matter where I go, because I like to read it often. I keep it in my bookbag. What do I do if I am out somewhere and I have to go to the bathroom. I cant leave the Quran outside because someone might take it and so I just keep it in my bookbag and take both into the bathroom. Is this acceptable? Remember, in america public restrooms have a large open area, and a private toilet area. Where can I take my bag? Either place

Praise be to Allaah.

If you can keep it outside, this is good, but if you are afraid that it will be stolen or lost, then it is OK to take it into the bathroom with you if it is inside a case or bag. But keep the bag away from the toilets, because this is better. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
