Men wearing silver rings

Q: What is the ruling on a Muslim man wearing a silver ring? Is it unlawful? Does wearing it require a case of necessity; such as using it as a stamp? Also, what is the ruling on a man wearing a silver wedding ring? Is wearing it considered imitating non-Muslims? Please enlighten us, and may Allah reward you!

A: Firstly, it is permissible for men to wear silver rings, whether they wear it for a necessity or not, based on evidence from the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet) in this regard.Secondly, we know of no basis for wearing a wedding ring in the Shari`ah (Islamic law), thus it is a Bid`ah (innovation in religion). Ignorant Muslims and those with weak faith (Part No. 24; Page No. 62) imitate the customs of non-Muslims, which is prohibited. The Prophet (peace be upon him) warned against copying non-Muslims.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
