“Islamic” T-shirts

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
There are T-shirts currently available in my area with the word "Allah" written on it. The issue has been raised that this is wrong because people may abuse the T-shirt by wearing it or throwing it on the floor out of carelessness. Also, it has been asked whether it can be worn to the toilet.
What is your opinion on the matter ?

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not permissible to buy or wear these T-shirts, and the one who wears them should be denounced, because they involve disrespect towards the name of Allaah, which is bound to be mistreated by being printed on these shirts, whether they are thrown in places where Allaah’s name should not be put, such as in bathrooms (especially when they get dirty and need washing) or are mistreated in other ways. If you and other Muslims refrain from buying these shirts, this will narrow the market for them, which will force the producers – if their aim is merely commercial – to stop printing them. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
