Wearing An Iron Ring For Men. by Taamas111 (m): 12:08am on January 14

I heard that wearing an iron ring is
haram (impermissible) for men. I
hope you can explain the matter,
with evidence.


Praise be to Allah
It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allah ibn
Buraydah from his father (may
Allah be pleased with them both)
that a man came to the Messenger
of Allah (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) and he was
wearing a ring of gold. He said:
“Why do I detect the stench of idols
on you?” So he threw it away. Then
he came and he was wearing a ring
of iron, and he said: “Why do I see
you wearing the jewellery of the
people of Hell?” So he threw it away.
He said: O Messenger of Allah, of
what should I wear (a ring)? He said:
“Wear (a ring) of silver, but no more
than a mithqal (a measure of
weight).” Narrated by Abu Dawood,
al-Tirmidhi and al-Nasai. Al-Tirmidhi
said: This is a ghareeb (strange)
hadeeh. It was narrated from Iyas
ibn al-Harith ibn al-Mu’ayqeeb that
his grandfather said: The ring of the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) was made of iron
overlaid with silver. He said: I kept
it sometimes, and Mu’ayqeeb was in
charge of the ring of the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him). Narrated by Abu Dawood
and al-Nasai.

In al-Saheehayn it is narrated from
Sahl ibn Sa’d al-Ansari (may Allah be
pleased with him) that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him) said to the one who
proposed marriage to the woman
who had offered herself in marriage
to the Prophet (peace and blessings
of Allah be upon him): “Look for
something (to give as a dowry),
even if it is a ring of iron.” This
indicates that it is permissible to
wear a ring of iron, as is indicated
by the hadeeth of Mu’ayqeeb. As for
the hadeeth of Buraydah quoted
above, there is some weakness in its
isnad (chain of narration). Thus it is
clear that the more correct view is
that it is not makrooh (disliked) to
wear a ring of iron. But wearing a
ring of silver is better, because the
ring of the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) was
made of silver, as is proven in al-

And Allah is the Source of strength.
May Allah send blessings and peace
upon our Prophet Muhammad and
his family and companions. End
