Asalam Alayikum Is it haram for men and women to wear rings? Not only wedding rings but just rings in general?
According to a fatwa by the Qatari fatwa authority, Muslim men are permitted to wear rings, including silver rings. But golden rings are prohibited for men. Muslim men may not wear bracelets and necklaces and earrings meant for decoration due to the fact that these are meant for women. But bands on the arm and neck are permitted if they have a different purpose.
As for women, they may wear rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces, including gold and silver ones.
