Question

Is it permissible for a man to wear a ring made of platinum?

Summary of answer

Men can wear rings made of platinum as long as it is not an extravagance on the part of one who cannot afford to wear this kind of jewellery and it should not cause any kind of fitnah.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

We put this question to Sheikh Muhammad ibn Salih al-‘Uthaymin, may Allah have mercy on him, who answered as follows:

Men can wear rings made of platinum with two conditions:

  1. That it is not an extravagance on the part of one who cannot afford to wear this kind of jewellery
  2. That it should not cause any kind of fitnah (temptation), such as the man being young and perhaps causing fitnah by wearing it.

The basic principle with regard to clothing is that everything is permissible except gold rings , which are haram for men as is well known.

And Allah knows best.
