Title: Women wearing Platinum Rings



I would like to query the use of platinum rings for women...If Mufti could give clarity as to whether its allowed or not n why.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is not permissible for women to wear platinum rings. Women may wear only gold or silver rings.[i]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

مسألة: [حكم التختم بغير الذهب والفضة]

قال: (ويكره التختم بالحديد، وبما سوى الفضة، إلا الذهب للنساء خاصة).

وذلك لما روي "أن النبي عليه الصلاة والسلام اتخذ خاتما من حديد، ثم ألقاه، وكرهه، واتخذ خاتما من فضة".

وأما الذهب فلما روي أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: "الذهب والحرير حرام على ذكور أمتي، حل لإناثها

(وَأَمَّا) التَّخَتُّمُ بِمَا سِوَى الذَّهَبِ وَالْفِضَّةِ مِنْ الْحَدِيدِ وَالنُّحَاسِ وَالصِّفْرِ فَمَكْرُوهٌ لِلرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ جَمِيعًا لِأَنَّهُ زِيُّ أَهْلِ النَّارِ لِمَا رَوَيْنَا مِنْ الْحَدِيثِ

المحيط البرهاني في الفقه النعماني (5/ 348)

فأما التختم بالحديد والرصاص والصفر والشبة فهو حرام على النساء والرجال

وَفِي الْخُجَنْدِيِّ التَّخَتُّمُ بِالْحَدِيدِ وَالصُّفْرِ وَالنُّحَاسِ وَالرَّصَاصِ مَكْرُوهٌ لِلرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ جَمِيعً

 حَدَّثَنَا عَفَّانُ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، أَخْبَرَنَا عَمَّارُ بْنُ أَبِي عَمَّارٍ (2)

أَنَّ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ، قَالَ: إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ " رَأَى فِي يَدِ رَجُلٍ خَاتَمًا مِنْ ذَهَبٍ، فَقَالَ: " أَلْقِ ذَا "، فَأَلْقَاهُ، فَتَخَتَّمَ بِخَاتَمٍ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ، فَقَالَ: " ذَا شَرٌّ مِنْهُ "، فَتَخَتَّمَ بِخَاتَمٍ مِنْ فِضَّةٍ، فَسَكَتَ عَنْهُ
