The Ruling Regarding Wearing a Silver Ring, and in Which Hand it is Worn

 


Question:

What is the ruling on wearing a silver ring, and if so, in which hand?
Answer:

There is no harm in wearing a silver ring, either for a male or a female. It is also allowed to wear it on either hand, although the right hand is better because it is the more honourable since the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) used to wear a ring on his, right hand sometimes, and on his left sometimes, and he is the best example.
The gold ring or watch, however, is forbidden for men to wear; from the many Hadeeths that mention this, only women are allowed to wear gold and silk.

And with Allaah is the facilitation to do what is right.
