Q 4: Is
wearing gold or eating in silver utensils
just disliked or legally forbidden and punishable like abandoning Salah?
(Part No. 24; Page No. 88
It is forbidden for men to wear gold. Likewise, it is forbidden for both men and women to eat in silver utensils. Whoever does that has to repent to Allah, ask for forgiveness, and stop this misdeed. If they repent, praise be to Allah; otherwise they are evildoers and worthy of punishment regardless of the degree of punishment. Allah (Exalted be He) says,
...whosoever works evil, will have the recompense thereof
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
