Assalamu alaykum. Is it permissible to sell
Islamic publications, which may include the
glorious Qur'an, for profit as a business. I
have heard that there is some saying in the
Sharee'ah about people who sell Allah's
verses. Kindly guide me on this matter.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

It is permissible to sell the religious books
[books of knowledge and Fiqh] even though
some scholars disliked it. However,
the most preponderant opinion is that it is
permissible to sell the books of knowledge
and this is not disliked.

It is not disliked to sell such books because
if people were to stop selling them, then
religious knowledge would disappear.
As regards the Quranic verses which threaten
the sale of the Verses of Allah, as Allah Says
(what means): { And do not exchange My
Signs for a small price. }[Quran 2:41]; then it
does not mean what you mentioned in the
question, rather it means something else,
among which is what Ibn Katheer said
about it: “ It means do not abandon believing
in My Signs and in My Prophet because of
being preoccupied by this worldly life and its
desires as it is a temporary pleasure .”

Allah Knows best.
