Allah's name as structural design


Is using the name of Allāh in the design of the grills of our terrace or windows permitted? Answer: Wa alaikum Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, The main purpose of God’s name is to be uttered sincerely by the tongue, in praise and glorification to Him, while in worship and remembrance of Him. That being said, it is mubah (allowed) to put the name of Allah in a structural design provided the following conditions are met: The intent should not only be for decoration, rather for a reminder to exalt the name of Allāh. One should firmly believe that blessings are not attained simply by hanging or designing the name of Allah rather it is by reciting and articulating the name of Allah There should be no disrespect or disregard for the name of Allah “Whoever honours the signs of Allah, indeed, it is from the piety of hearts.” (Qurʿān 22:32) Disrespect to verses of the Qurʿan and Allah’s name is damaging to one’s faith and may also lead to an act of kufr (disbelief). (Rad Al-Muḥtār) And Allah Knows Best Mufti Umer Farooq Saleem
