Is it permissible to sell a Bismillah canvas to a non-Muslim?


I Christian woman wants a canvas with the bismillah written on it.  Is it permissible to make it for her?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to sell a canvas with the Bismillah text to a non-Muslim on condition there is no fear of desecration.

And Allah Ta’ālā Knows Best

Mufti Faraz al-Mahmudi,
