Taking a Quraan in a bag into the toilet when travelling

Q: I am a student of knowledge who studies in South Africa. Often, when I arrive at the airport after a long flight, the need arises to use the toilet. My carry on bag etc. contains Quraan and other books as well and its not safe to leave the bags outside the bathroom. Am I allowed to bring it into the toilet?

A: If the Quraan Majeed is kept with respect in the bag, then it is permissible to take the bag in the toilet.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
