The Ruling Concerning Men Wearing Gold Rings
What is the ruling concerning men wearing a gold ring, which is commonly referred to as a wedding ring?
It is not permitted for men to wear a gold ring, neither before they get married nor after. Because the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) forbade wearing gold rings in authentic Hadeeths. And when he saw a gold ring on a man's hand, he removed it and hurled it onto the ground. He said,
íÚãÏ ÃÍÏßã Åáì ÌãÑÉ ãä äÇÑ ÝíÌÚáåÇ Ýí íÏå
"One of you takes to an ember of the Fire and then puts it on his hand!." (Muslim no. 2090)
This indicates that it is absolutely unlawful for men to wear rings of gold, even if it is for marriage.
