Using taps and showers with the name “Idrees”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Recently we noticed that the newly installed taps and showers have the name of a company called ‘idrees’ embossed on each one of them. Since it is the name of one of the Nabis (عليهم السّلام), so we would like to enquire as to what should be done?


A: Since the name Idrees intended is the name of the company, there is no problem.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
