Q: I’ve heard Nike is haram, but with regards to their shoes, I am putting them on my feet which is disrespect to the fake God just like if I were to do it with Allah it would be very disrespectful. Then I don’t believe that Nike is god I just like their products. Finally, if in fact this doesn’t matter and it is still haram would it be sufficient to deface the logo of the Nike products I have in order to wear them?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
