Praise be to Allaah.
The name of Allaah should not be written on these caps, so as
to protect His name from being disrespected and so as to free the wearer of
any inconvenience, because he may need to go to the toilet wearing this cap,
and it may be difficult for him to take if off every time he wants to do
The way in which the name of Allaah may be disrespected in
this case is that the cap may be worn and taken off and placed on the floor
and so on, and it may be affected by dirt such as dust and sweat, or the
wearer may do something that Allaah has forbidden and disallowed, such as
smoking or backbiting about people, when he is wearing the name of Allaah
written on his head.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said
concerning the ruling on putting Qur’aanic verses on clothing: If the aim of
that is to exhort and remind people, we do not find that in the gatherings
where verses of Qur’aan are present (e.g. on the walls), we do not find that
they increase people’s piety or awareness of Allaah, rather in some of these
gatherings we see that evils are committed, where people smoke and backbite
about others and eat their flesh, and the book of Allaah is above their
heads, but they are gatherings in which Allaah is disobeyed. End quote from
Liqaa’aat al-Baab il-Maftooh (2/54).
And Allaah knows best.
