The Qur'an is the Holy book of Islam. It is equivalent to the Holy Bible in Christianity. It is not always acceptable to give the Qur'an to a non Muslim, this is because one may think of non challant behavior on the Holy book, you must be cleansed to read it, you must not maltreat it and more.
When this instructions are not adhered to, it will be hard to release the Holy book.

Praise be to Allaah.
The Holy Qur’aan should not be touched by anyone except those who are purified. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Verily, the Mushrikoon (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allaah, and in the Message of Muhammad) are Najasun (impure)” [al-Tawbah 9:28]
On this basis, the kaafir should not be permitted to touch the Qur’aan, whether he is a Christian, a Jew, a Buddhist, a Hindu or anything else. But it is permissible for him to listen to the Qur’aan on radio or TV, or from tapes, and it is permissible for him to read the translations of the meanings of the Qur’aan which are available in different languages.
  • Batuulah: What if the translation is in hard copy? I mean exactly of the same verses and chapters? Only that it doesn't contain Arabic?

  • isaaq: This is a controversial matter and there is a difference of opinion.
    some scholars adopted the opinion that touching the Noble Qur'an is permissible for non-Muslims. They said it is probable that they embrace islam by doing so. They supported their argument by mentioning the Prophet's message (peace be upon him) to Heraclius the king of the Romans in which he mentioned Allah's Saying (Glorified and Exalted be He):
    Say (O Muhammad ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ ): "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to a word that is just between us and you . [Surah Al-Imran 3:64]
    They stated that this a great Ayah from the Book of Allah and he wrote it to Heraclius. However, the correct opinion is that this is not a proof, rather it indicates the permissibility of writing an Ayah or two of the Book of Allah. As for handing over the Mus-haf; there are no authentic reports from him (peace be upon him) in this regard.
