Are we allowed to give Quran to non-Muslim? If yes then either with translation or without or only in English or any other language.

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

In the aforementioned scenario, it will be best to give non Muslims a translation of the Holy Quran rather than giving a copy with the Arabic text. Furthermore, it should be given to those whose guidance is intended and you are reasonably confident that they would not disrespect the Holy Qur’an.

You should not give them a copy of the Quran in Arabic as the opinion of certain scholars like Ibn Abideen Shami (RA) is that non Muslims are obliged to perform a ritual bath for touching it. (Raddul Muhtar p.119 v.1 & Fatawa Hindiyyah p.323 v.5)
