Using the Word ‘Sihr/ Magic’ as a Brand Name

Tags : 

Answered by Imam Mazhar Mahmood



I plan on investing in a clothing line. My partners and I were planning on naming our line of clothing siḥr (magic). Would this be permissible?



We thank you for contacting Mathabah for your query. We ask Allāh Almighty to bless your endeavors and the line of business you are pursuing

The word “سحر” siḥr is not just limited to being used for magic or even black magic. It has not always been used in a negative context.

Tilāwah; Truly Immerce with the Qur’ān

Originally published on 

by Imam Mazhar Mahmood

Just as Muslims are encouraged to abide by the pristine commands of Allāh Almighty in the Qur’ān, they are also encouraged to recite and understand the book of Allāh to the best of their abilities.

Many a times, we find ourselves in a situation, where we engage with the book of the Almighty sporadically; An on and off basis, or perhaps Friday to Friday or even Ramadān to Ramadān.

Allāh’s Messenger (peace and blessings upon him) was not only commanded to teach the Qur’ān to his Ummah. He had also been emphatically commanded to recite this divine scripture of the Almighty.
