What does the Quran say about swearing upon it? Is one allowed to swear on the Quran if you are telling the truth?
The Quran itself does not mention a ruling on swearing by the Quran. However, since in Islamic theology the Words of God are attributes of Him, swearing by the Quran is the same as swearing by God and the same rules apply to it.

- An article the mentions a fatwa from the Al-Azhar Fatwa Council (Arabic PDF)
And God knows best.
