Is It Permissible to Ship Copies of the Qur’an Overseas?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: I want to have a shop with Islamic articles in my home country and i want to buy the Qur’ans from Egypt as they’re much cheaper there. After buying them I can make sure to pack them well, but I’m not present with the shipment and there might be non Muslims working in its transportation. Is it allowed for me to ship them in this way?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

Yes, according to reliable contemporary scholars, it would be permitted to post or ship copies of the Qur’an.

However, you should ensure that you pack them well so that the packaging gets thrown around and not the mushaf itself.

And Allah alone gives success.
