Nike Apparel

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Is it permissible to wear Nike clothing. People say it’s the name of a Greek god.


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

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

Nike, Inc was founded on January 25, 1964, as Blue Ribbon Sports, and officially became Nike, Inc. on May 30, 1971. The company takes its name from Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.1

Nowadays. Nike products are seen as a global sportswear brand and does not refer to the Greek goddess. It is permissible to use Nike products.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
