Ask an Alim

Printing name of Allah swt on shoping bags of a shopping mall…..

Q:

Is Al- fatah name printed on shopping bags of a shopping mall will be considered as name of shopping of mall or will it have to be respected as name of Allah?

A:

Wa alaykum salaam

If the intention of the shopkeeper is Allah’s name, then it has to be respected.
If other than Allah’s name is intended, than there is no problem if its not respected unless the public considers it as Allah’s name.
In this case, he should educate them if he can.
