Can Men Wear Gold Rings? (FATWA)​

Can Men Wear Gold Rings? (FATWA)

The Question


What do the scholars of the religion and jurists of the Islāmic law say regarding the following issue:


Is it okay to wear a gold ring while traveling with the intention that it will be beneficial in a needy time, or is it okay to keep silver and gold in the pocket while performing ṣalāh? Please explain and be rewarded.


The Answer


Gold rings are not permissible for men. Silver rings with one stone, regardless of how valuable the stone is, must be less than 4.5 māshah (silver) in order to be permissible for a man to wear. There is no problem in keeping silver or gold in a pocket while performing ṣalāh. 


Allāh E knows best.
