The Lajnah ad-Da’imah was asked the following question :
What is the ruling on wearing sports outfits that bear logos of non-Muslims such as sports T-Shirts with Italian, German, and American logos or those bearing the names of non-Muslim players?
Wearing the outfits that bear logos of non-Muslims has some details:
- If such logos refer to the religions of the disbelievers, such as the Cross and the like, it is impermissible to import, sell, or wear these clothes.
- If these logos glorify a non-Muslim figure by putting his picture or writing his name on the sporting outfit, this is also Haram [prohibited].
- If these logos neither refer to any kind of worship nor glorification of a certain person, rather they are just ordinary commercial logos, then there is no harm in wearing such outfits.
May Allah grant us success.
May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
