Answer

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

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

In principle, anything with the name of Allah and His Messenger (salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) written on it deserves respect immaterial of which language it is written in.[1],[2]

From a practical point of view, a t-shirt bearing the name of Allah or His Messenger (sall Allahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) inadvertently will be disrespected. For example,

  • When relieving one’s self[3]
  • Throwing the shirt with other dirty clothes in the laundry basket
  • Flinging the shirt to a side when going to sleep, etc.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
