i would never ever where nike shoes, even if i had to go bare footed.

nike was a greek goddess, this is a stylised version of this goddesses winged shoe symbol and to wear any symbol of another faith knowingly is kufr akbar.

:sl: akhi,

I dislike disagreements, so I'm not going to get into a long drawn out discussion; at the same time I believe it's important to put forth another perspective so here is my humble attempt at doing so.

No one, literally no one, today wears Nike seeking to venerate or worship a goddess, the sign has no religious significance whatsoever in our times. This makes it an ijtihad based issue and these kinds of ijtihad based issues have been around right from the early days of Islam. I personally believe that declaring it completely haram is unwarranted though I do see the reasoning why some scholars would say it's haram.

My point being, if we were to start looking into symbols and structures and words around us, we would find many having a pagan background. For example, would anyone declare it kufr akbar to use the words 'Sunday', 'Monday' and 'Tuesday' when each comes from 'Sol' the god of the Sun, Mani, the god of the moon, and Tyr the war-god respectively? All of these come from a pagan background, not to mention the rest of the days of the week and the names of the months!

I believe that if someone wants to avoid wearing it out of personal Taqwa, go ahead, that's really good. But we should just be a little more careful when declaring things as kufr and kufr-akbar.

All that said, I personally don't like Nikes. I prefer Reeboks (smile).

:w: akhi,

these are opinions of legitimate ulema of ahlus sunnah, to wear the religious symbol knowing it is such is kufr akbar because according to the Quran and sunnah imaan is made up of belief, speech and action.

it is not enough to believe something to be wrong, a man who believes idol worship to be wrong but still bows to an idol is a kaffir if he had no compulsion, or wasnt insane etc.

simularly, it is not enough to know wearing a religious symbol is haram, to act by wearing such a symbol contradicts imaan by action.

I do wish more people would make this argument rather than the one in the original post.

Symbolism is everywhere we cant avoid them if even if we tried
different corporate logo’s, the use of checkerboards in movies and many other things the synchronization of masonic and paganistic symbols are everywhere around us, however what we could do is keep hold of allah's rope by preserving and executing the five daily prayers day in day out......inshallah
