Gold and platinum rings

Fatwaa ID: 1628

Assalamualaikum. Two questions. Is gold ring haram for 3 month old baby boy?

Is it alright for men to wear platinum ring?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. Rasulullaah ﷺ said regarding gold and silk,
    إِنَّ هَذَيْنِ حَرَامٌ عَلَى ذُكُورِ أُمَّتِي
    “Indeed, these two are haraam for the males of my ummah.” [Abu Dawood 4057]

The word dhukoor is general and includes non-baaligh boys. Furthermore, the nurturing and upbringing of a child is from a young age. Accordingly, a baby boy should not wear gold rings.

  1. According to the Hanafi legal school, a man is only permitted to wear silver or silver plated rings. Platinum rings are not permissible.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
