Accessories with Allah talaa’s name on


Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

Hope this question reaches you in good state of imaan and health. Apologies for the simple question. 

Would it be considered disrespectful to have accessories such as for the car with Allah SWTs name or with Ayaat of the Qur'an such as Ayatul Qursi? I had seen a car hanger with the Safar dua and Ayatul Qursi and intended to purchase it to remind myself to read the dua before driving and to remind my fellow passengers however had reservations as to whether it would be permissible or not.

Jazak Allahu Khairah, may Allah SWT accept your khidmah of deen and give us all the tawfeeq to act upon complete deen and assist his deen. Request for duas. 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

May Allah grant us the ability to do good with sincerity and accept it.

It is not disrespectful to use such accessories to remind ourselves of dua for safar etc. However, one should ensure that no disrespect is shown to accessories having verses of the Quran or duas or names of Allah.[i]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

قلت: وظاهر انتفاء الكراهة بمجرد تعظيمه وحفظه علق أو لا زين به أو لا، وهل ما يكتب على المراوح وجدر الجوامع كذا ‏يحرر‎.‎

‏ (قوله: يحرر) أقول: في فتح القدير: وتكره كتابة القرآن وأسماء الله تعالى على الدراهم والمحاريب والجدران وما يفرش. اهـ. والله ‏تعالى أعلم.‏

(باب الشهيد)  (الجزء 2\247)

ـ وقدمنا قبيل باب المياه عن الفتح أنه تكره كتابة القرآن وأسماء الله - تعالى - على الدراهم والمحاريب والجدران وما يفرش، وما ‏ذاك إلا لاحترامه، وخشية وطئه ونحوه مما فيه إهانة

ويكره أن يجعل.... في كاغد فيه اسم الله تعالى؛ بخلاف الكيس يكتب فيه اسم الله؛ لأن الكيس يعظم أما الكاغد، والقرطاس ‏فيستهان‎.‎

ويكره أن يجعل شيئا في كاغدة فيها اسم الله تعالى كانت الكتابة على ظاهرها أو باطنها ، بخلاف الكيس عليه اسم الله تعالى فإنه لا ‏يكره ، كذا في الملتقط.....................

لا بأس بكتابة اسم الله تعالى على الدراهم ؛ لأن قصد صاحبه العلامة لا التهاون ، كذا في جواهر الأخلاطي .
