A Ring with the Holy Names
Question :

I have a ring which has the names of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) inscribed on the top of the stone. This means that I have to take care of not allowing Najasah to touch it, and I should not touch it without wudhu, and I have to take it off whenever I enter the toilet. It is not always possible to remove my ring. What do you suggest?

Answer :

We advise you to have a ring that does not have any holy name written on it, which you are free to wear in any place, and wear the mentioned ring with the holy names written on it when you are praying.

Rings
Question :

I have been told that the narrations regarding rings other than aqiq, such as feyroza, yaqoot etc. are weak. Is this true, and does that mean that wearing a ring other than aqiq has no benefit?

Answer :

Wearing turquoise (feyroza) is confirmed in some narrations and whoever wears it does not face poverty; also, the same has been reported with respect to ruby. We do not need to investigate the authenticity of such narrations, as these actions will be deemed ‘mustahabb’ (recommended) even if they are not authenticated. This is because Almighty Allah, as per authentic narrations, has promised to reward the deeds of the believers if they performed those deeds relying on such narrations, even if such narrations were not authenticated.

Middle Finger
Question :

I want to ask you a question about wearing the ring in the middle and index finger. Someone showed me a book, in which there is a narration - hadith that wearing the ring in the index finger and the middle finger is prohibited. Please help?

Answer :

There were some narrations that urge not to wear the ring in the middle and the index fingers but their chain of narrators are broken so they cannot prove a religious law in addition to the fact that the said could mean that it is not recommended.

An Agate Ring
Question :

I wear an aqiq (agate) ring. Should I wear it on my right hand or can I also wear it one my left hand? What if I have two rings?

Answer :

It has been reported that wearing a ring in the right hand is recommended and it is not recommended to wear a ring in the left hand when one is not wearing any in the right hand. Yes, if one decided to wear more than one ring, then it is fine to wear a ring in the left hand.
