I have a question that we are going to Makkah for Umrah this year. After completing Umrah, can we bring one Quran with us from our home? Is it okay if we are taking one copy of the Quran from Masjid ul Haram? I heard there is free distribution of copies of the Holy Quran in Makkah and the copies of the Quran kept at masjid is of that category. Please advise.
Bazil: Brother, no matter how much you love to have a souvenir with you from the most loved Holy place in the world, you should not ever think of removing a single thing from there even though if you find a suitcase full of money, all that which is lying there belong to the Haram and not to be removed from it. Keep it for the Haram personals to deal with it, those things go to good deeds. So for your own sake and to keep the curs away from you and your family, leave everything behind when leaving the Holy places.
May Allah reward you and your family as Umat Mohamed the best place in Janat an Naeem and with His best people. At Bab Malik Fahad there is a counter for free distribution of Holly Quran and other useful religious books. However, it is not allowed to take Quran from Haram per the Haram law. You can buy a copy of the Quran and take it with you! There is no problem in this regard. Do not take the Quran from Masjid al Haram as it is the property of Masjid.
Some people buy the copies of the Holy Quran and put them on the shelves of Haram Makkah and Madina for the sake of Thawab. They believe that they will get a reward when others will recite these copies. However, it is also important to mention here that the staff of Haram is required to remove all these copies from the shelves. Only those copies of Holy Quran which has a stamp that they are dedicated to Haram will remain there.
