Is It Permissible To Wear a Shoe Called “Israfil?”

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org
Is it permissible to wear a shoe called “Israfil?”
Dear questioner,
Thank you for your important question.
May Allah, Most High reward you for your desire to increase in knowledge.
Wearing a shoe that has the title of a great angel is heavily disliked and sinful, but it is not an act of disbelief. [Ibn Maza, Muhit al-Burhani]
Allah, Most High says: “That is so. And whoever honors the symbols of Allah, it is certainly out of the piety of the heart.” [Qur’an, 22:32]
Showing respect to what Allah, Most High has honored is a sign of piety and righteousness.
We advise you to stop wearing the shoe and get rid of it. Please consider reaching out to the company and informing them of this disrespectful action.
And Allah alone knows best,
[Ustadh] Omar Popal
