Wearing clothes, shoes etc that have the nike logo

Question ID: 27213

Aslaamualaykuma warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

Dear mufti sahib I have a question about wearing clothes, Hats, socks, socks that are Nike or that have Nike Logos/signs.

Nike is the Name of the Greek goddess of victory, and the swoosh on the logo represents the wing of this so-called goddess.
‘Nike’ may have originally been used as the name of a Greek goddess, such connotations of the word have long disappeared.

Since it no longer carries any religious signification in the eyes of people but its,seen simply as the name of a global sports brand, would a person become a kaafir by making their children wear Nike clothes, shoes etc, or even by wearing such clothes and shoes themselves or even gifting clothes and shoes from Nike to others?

Jazakallah khair

No. But one must exercise caution.
