One of us carries the Mushaf (copy of the Qur’aan) in his pocket and may enter the toilets with it; what is the ruling on this? Benefit us (with an answer).
Carrying the Mushaf in one’s pocket is permissible, however it is not permissible for a person to enter the toilets with the Mushaf; rather he should put it away in a decent place out of respect for the book of Allaah; but if he is compelled by necessity to enter (the toilets) with it, out of fear that it may get stolen; then it is permissible to leave it outside due to that necessity (that compelled him to enter the toilets). And to Allaah belongs all success, and may peace and blessings be upon our prophet Muhammad (salla Allaahu alaihi wa sallam), his family and his companions.
