Distribution of the Quran

The belief among Muslims that giving the Quran to non-Muslims amounts to violation of its sanctity is completely un-Islamic. This belief is based on misinterpretation of a Quranic verse: ‘which none can touch except the purified’ (56:79). This verse does not lay down a command but simply states the fact that the Quran was conveyed from God to man through the medium of angels who are pure beings. The Quran was revealed to make mankind aware of the creation plan of God. Therefore, it is the duty of Muslims to distribute the Quran to non-Muslims.
