Q: Is it
permissible for women to wear gold?
I believe I have heard a Hadith stating that the Messenger (peace be upon him) prohibited gold for women. Please, advise.
It is not Haram (prohibited) for women to wear gold. It was narrated by
Abu Musa Al-Ash`ary (Part No. 17; Page No. 137) (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated:
Gold and silk are permitted for the female of our Ummah and prohibited for its male.
Al-Tirmidhy who ranked it as Sahih (authentic)] It was also collected by
Abu Dawud, and
Al-Hakim who ranked it as Sahih (authentic). It was also collected by
Ibn Hazm ranked it as Sahih (authentic).
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
