Q 2: There are Saudi men and women
who fit gold teeth without this being prescribed by the dentist.
Is this Haram (prohibited) or not?
It is Haram for men to fit gold teeth unless this is necessary. It was related by
Al-Tirmidhy on the authority of
`Abdul-Rahman ibn Tarafah who narrated that his grandfather
`Arfajah ibn Sa`d had his nose cut off in the battle of Al-Kilab and got a silver nose, but it developed a stench, so the Prophet (Part No. 24; Page No. 72) (peace be upon him) ordered him to get a gold nose.
As for women, there is no objection to fitting gold teeth because of the general meanings of the Hadiths, which permit gold adornment for women.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
