Answered by: Maulana Naieem Mohammad
If someone has a card for example with their name Abdullah on it but in Arabic, would it suffice to simply cross out/line over the Allah (SWT) part until it’s indiscernible and then get rid of that card or paper.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The intention of writing the name is considered because all matters are judged by their intended purposes.
Due to the intention not being to actually write the name of Allah (s.w.t.) but to write the name of a human being, then crossing out the part with the name “Allah” is indeed a great sign of care and will suffice.
Only Allah knows best
