This reminds me of Im a Minnesota Viking and a Minnesota Twin for life shirt King Offa of Mercia whose coins had the inscription ” There is no God but Allah”.
Supposedly, they mistook the Arabic Script on the Dinar to be for aesthetic decorations rather than being scripts and emulated the Dinar.
Any who, the Vikings does not necessarily mean people from Scandinavia or the culture of it, they were pirates who pillaged far and wide, so maybe they had some Moors from either Spain or Northern Africa with them in their crew?
It’s a well known fact, that the Vikings had an established trading network with the Middle-East, primarily through the Volga Trade Route. Therefore, they were obviously bound to acquire muslim artifacts, like that ring and clothing. However, as some have suggested, this does seem to be an agenda driven attempt, to establish some sort of spurious historical link with the muslim world because Sweden’s immigration policy is a total mess.
I always knew that many of the Vikings had accepted Islam, influenced by the Muslim manners, similar to Turks’, and South East Asians’ accepting of Islam, influenced by Muslim manner, fare trade and trustworthiness of Muslims. Same can ve told about some of the most influencial Native American tribes being practicing Islam till the arrival of the barbaric Europeans who eradicated the traces of Islam from the continent today called “America”.
The fabric was ‘enlarged and look at in a mirrors reflection’ only then did it read allah!! So the people who hand sewn these clothes did the ‘allah’ word so small and back to front just in case someone in the future decided to look at the reflection of it!! Seriously. BBC

If you want an example of politically driven pseudoscience then this is it!
Current Swedish establishment are clearly desperate to infer that Sweden has always been full of Islam to justify their relentless efforts to import the third world into towns like Malmo!
Yes the Norse traded with the middle east. We have always known this but they are trying to now claim that the Norse were themselves in some way Islamic! Far more likely that the owner had just bought a fancy garment on his travels or traded with someone who had. The Norse after all were obsessed with fashions and looking good ( a very non islamic trait!).
The very fact it was amongst grave goods suggests a pagan burial.
But the; “If you read it upside down in a mirror it spells Allah in an ancient script therefore they were influenced by Islam!” Narrative is nonsense and dangerous political re-writing of history!
