Can I wear gold ring to treat memory and laziness?


Aslam o alaykum.

I'm 30 years male . i have been really bad memory and very bad brai and health issue .  I tried everything but nothing works . in the end i try wearing real gold chain and a golden gold ring recommended by asian herbalist doctor . I'm getting much better . Im getting proactive instead of lazy . my memory is improving a lot

If i remove it after 1 or 2 days i start to get same weak memory and. Lazziness and headache  and same bad health and my perfomance in office gets bad day by day . but if i wear it i get better in office as i get active as well and don't forget too much.

But gold is Haraam for men what ahould i do ? 

I'm wearing it for curing by deaease which haven't been cured till yet . doctor say it's opening your 3rd sense and your resistsnce power thats why you need gold in your diet as well


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

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

Gold is prohibited for males. It is not permissible to treat oneself with haram if viable, halal alternatives are available. There are many cures to laziness and memory loss. You should consult an expert, Muslim physician for his advice. We make dua to Allah that he grants you cure from your sicknesses.[1][2]

We advise you to habitually read the following dua:

اللهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْعَجْزِ، وَالْكَسَلِ، وَالْجُبْنِ، وَالْهَرَمِ، وَالْبُخْلِ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ، وَمِنْ فِتْنَةِ الْمَحْيَا وَالْمَمَاتِ

Translation: Oh Allah! I seek refuge with you from incapacity, laziness, cowardice, senility and miserliness. I seek refuge with you from the punishment of the grave and from the trials of life and death.[3]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

سنن أبي داود ج٦ ص١٦٥ ط دار الرسالة العالمية

إن نبي الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- أخذ حريرا فجعله في يمينه، وأخذ ذهبا فجعله في شماله، ثم قال: "إن هذين حرام على ذكور أمتي"


المحيط البرهاني ج٨ ص٨٢ ط إدارة القرآن

التداوي بلبن الأتان إذا أشاروا إليه لا بأس به؛ هكذا ذكر الصدر الشهيد رحمه الله وفيه نظر؛ لأن لبن الأتان حرام، والاستشفاء بالحرام حرام، وما قال الصدر الشهيد فهو غير مجرى على إطلاقه، فإن الاستشفاء بالمحرم إنما لا يجوز إذا لم يعلم أن فيه شفاء؛ أما إذا علم أن فيه شفاء، وليس له دواء آخر غيره فيجوز الاستشفاء به



صحيح مسلم ج٤ ص٢٠٧٩ ط دار إحياء التراث العربي

كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، يقول: اللهم إني أعوذ بك من العجز، والكسل، والجبن، والهرم، والبخل، وأعوذ بك من عذاب القبر، ومن فتنة المحيا والممات
