Engraving Allah's Name on a ring

Fatwa no. 21284 All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family, and Companions.The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta' reviewed the request submitted to his Eminence the Grand Mufty (Islamic scholar qualified to issue legal opinions) from his Excellence the Manager of the Da`wah and Guidance Center in Jeddah, number (790/9/20) dated 11/10/1420 AH, which was referred to the Committee from the General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars with the number (5107) in 22/10/1420 AH. The following question was posed:Attached is a ring presented by a person who demands a Fatwa about it. The Name of Allah is engraved on the ring with a cross drawn on the letter "L". We hope your Eminence will examine the ring and answer the question.

After studying the question, the Committee answered: It is not permissible for a Muslim who believes in Allah and the Hereafter to use items bearing symbols of Kufr (disbelief), (Part No. 24; Page No. 69) such as crosses, stars of David, Buddha statue, and the like, whether they are in the form of clothing, rings, medals, etc. Likewise, it is Haram (prohibited) to make, sell, or buy these items, because this involves cooperation in sin and transgression and accepting Munkar (that which is unacceptable or disapproved of by Islamic law and Muslims of sound intellect). Accordingly, whoever possesses any of these items should get rid of it. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
