Wearing a necklace with الله written on it

Fatwaa ID: 2141

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Is it halal to wear a necklace with “الله” written on it?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is permissible for a woman to wear necklaces with الله pendants on them. However, she must ensure that due respect and honor is shown to it. The name of Allaah Ta’aala is not to be taken lightly. When going to the bathroom, she must cover it or remove it. She must stay away from all sins. Such a necklace should bring about the consciousness of Allaah Ta’aala in a person. She should feel shy even more to do any wrong. Furthermore, she should be reminded that true benefit is only in putting Allaah Ta’aala in the heart, not on the heart/chest.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
