Is It Sunnah for Men to Wear Rings?

24 September, 2020
Q Is it sunnah (a praiseworthy action) or is it mubah (merely a permissible action) for men to wear rings?


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

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

In this fatwa:

1- The general ruling on wearing rings for men is that it is merely permissible and may Allah reward us if we have the right intention when we wear our rings to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him)

2- It is not permissible for men to wear golden rings.

Sheikh Omar Suleiman elaborates more on this issue in this short video:

Almighty Allah knows best.
