Selling Hebrew manuscripts
Fatwa No: 26633


Is it permissible to sell Hebrew manuscripts?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alyhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

If these manuscripts contain falsehood, or if disseminating them would lead to enhancing falsehood, it is impermissible to sell, buy, or even keep them, except if it is done to refute what they contain. However, if the manuscripts do not include falsehood, it is permissible to buy, sell or keep them, as there is no objection to that.

Allaah Knows best.
