Rainbow Qur’aan Shareef


Is it permissible to use/purchase/sell ‘rainbow Quraans?



In principle, it is permissible to use, purchase and sell  such a copy of the Qur’ān Sharīf as the purpose of such colours would be to beautify the Qur’ān Sharīf. However, it would be advisable to those that print such kind of copies of the Qur’ān Sharīf (with Rainbow colours) to abstain from doing so; as it has become a trend and peculiar symbol of those who promote LGBTQ avoiding being desensitized regarding this movement’s flag and avoiding an atmosphere of resemblance to that which is synonymous with the LGBTQ movement. 

Note: The rainbow colour being synonymous with the LGBTQ movement certainly seems to be the case because an article in Wikipedia with regards to this movement depicts a rainbow-coloured flag with the caption “A six-band rainbow flag representing LGBT.”
