Q: We noticed in the letters sent by Dar Al-Amanah Company that the logo of the company is "Bismillah Al-Rahman, Al-Rahim [In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful])," (Part No. 3; Page No. 66) in addition to Allah's saying:
Verily, Allâh commands that you should render back the trusts to those to whom they are due
It is written in the form of a logo, and Allah's Name and the Ayah (Qur'anic verse) are written inversely in an ornamented style.Is it permissible in Shari`ah (Islamic law) to use the Ayahs and Names of Allah in this way? If it is not permissible, please warn the companies against writing the Ayahs in this way and using them for commercial or personal purposes. May Allah reward you with the best.
It is not permissible to
use an Ayah as a company logo. The Qur'an cannot be used as a title for a shop, as this entails disrespecting it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
