Is it permissible to wear a necklace that has written "Allah" or some Qur'anic "Aayahs (verses) on it"?

Dear Brother / Sister,
If a person goes to the toilet with a ring on which the name of Allah or the Prophet is written, he should hide his ring. If the ring is on his left hand, he should remove it when he cleanses himself. (Ibn Abidin, V, 317). Accordingly, a person who has a necklace on which the name of Allah is written can go to the toilet by covering the name or turning the back of the necklace. There is no difference between wearing it and a himala (piece of paper containing verses from the Quran or prayers and wrapped usually in the form of a triangle). The himala includes prayers and verses.
