Giving a Mus-haf to a Kafir who recently embraced Islam
Q: One of my non-Muslim workers has converted to Islam. A few hours later, he asked for a Mus-haf (copy of the Qur'an) and a translation to read. After a few days, he asked to go and perform `Umrah (lesser pilgrimage). Should I let him
touch the Mus-haf and travel to Allah's Sacred Land,
or wait a year or more until he becomes a true Muslim, and I am sure that has sincerely embraced Islam?
If you are sure concerning his Islam, it is permissible for you to give him a Mus-haf to read and accompany him to perform Hajj or `Umrah. You will be rewarded for this, In sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills). The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated:
Whoever calls others to follow guidance, their reward will be equivalent to those who shall follow them (in righteousness).
Allah helps His servant as long as the servant helps their fellow brothers.
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
