Ask an Alim

Is it permissible to wear a shoes which has muslim name ZARA written underneath the sole of the shoes?


One of the top clothing brands is named ZARA which is also a muslim name. So is it halal to wear shoes of that brand which have written ZARA on the insole & underneath the sole of the shoes?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.
ZARA” is a brand name so there is no problem in wearing those shoes. Apparently, ZARA is a short form and not the name as Zahra.

Overall, if there is God’s name, attribute or Imams name on these things which is counted as disrespect, then, in that case, it is not allowed to wear.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
