Q: Is it permissible to
offer Salah (Prayer) in a garment adorned with
a human or an animal image? Is it permissible to enter bathrooms wearing a garment on which the Name of Allah is written?
It is not permissible to offer Salah in garments adorned with the animate images such as humans, birds, animals or so on. It is also not permissible for a Muslim to wear them outside Salah. The Salah of those who perform it wearing garments adorned with images is valid but they are committing a sin if they know the legal ruling in this regard. It is not permissible to write the Name of Allah on the garment. It is Makruh (disliked) to enter bathrooms wearing a garment containing the Name of Allah as this is humiliation of the Name of Allah (Exalted be He).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
