Title: Can I give a Quran to a non-Muslim?

Question

MAY I GIVE / DONATE QURAN TO NON-MUSLIM (MEN / WOMEN). IF RECEIVER IS FEMALE, WHAT IS THE CONDITION IN CASE OF PERIOD. 

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

There are many digital options available that can be used to read the Quran. A person does not need wudhu to hold a phone while reading the Quran as long as the actual text on the screen of the Quran is not touched. This is a preferable method to employ for introducing non-Muslims to the Quran as it limits the chances of the Quran being disrespected. Keep in mind that a non-Muslim must still be instructed to maintain the etiquettes of respect while using a digital Quran.
