Hadith 3 About Wearing GemStones & Rings
Anas RadiyALLAHU relates that Rasulullah Prophet SallALLAHU Alayhi Wasallam made an intention to write letters to Kisra, Qaysur (Ceasar) and Najashi, inviting them to accept Islam. The people said: ‘(O Rasulullah) those people do not accept letters without a stamp on it’. For this reason, Rasulullah SallALLAHU Alayhi Wasallam had a stamp made. The ring (loop) of which was silver, and had Mu’hammad Rasulullah’ engraved on it”.
Abu Dawud and others have stated that besides the kings. Others are prohibited from wearing a ring. Since it has been proven that many Sahaabah RadiyALLAHU ‘Anhum wore a ring in the presence of Sayyidina Rasulullah SallALLAHU Alayhi Wasallam.
And in other ahaadith that Sayyidina Rasulullah SallALLAHU Alayhi Wasallam had permitted it. This prohibition will be taken as that which is contrary to a more meritorious and desired act.
As for the ring of our Beloved Prophet, Mu’hammad SallALLAHU Alayhi Wasallam. Muslim relates on the authority of Anas Bin Malik, ALLAH be pleased with him, that ALLAH’s Messenger, SallALLAHU Alayhi Wasallam use to wear a silver ring on his right hand.
In it was an Abyssinian stone and he used to make the stone face his palm.
Imam al-Nawawi said in Sahih Muslim:
“The scholars say- an Abyssinian stone means a stone of onyx (in which there is whiteness and blackness) or carnelian (‘Aqiq) because their mines are in Abyssinia and Yemen. It is also said, (it means) that its color was Abyssinian (i.e. black).” Taweez for Love Get Back
Some of the scholars among them al-Suyuti also said that Abyssinian means a kind of chrysolite with a greenish color which exists in the lands of the Abyssinians. Dua to Make Someone Fall in Love With You.
This prophetic tradition is rigorously authenticated and one explanation for an Abyssinian stone is that it was carnelian (‘Aqiq), but it should be noted that there are no prophetic traditions which have been authenticated stating that the prophet, ALLAH bless and grant him peace, wore a carnelian ring.
Shaykh Abdullah al-Lahji said in his commentary on al-Nabahani’s Shama’il: “Everything that has been transmitted of prophetic sayings concerning carnelian rings, indeed none of it is authenticated; even if it’s chains of transmission are numerous as the Hafiz Ibn Rajab said [ALLAH have mercy on him].” Pyar Se Shadi Karne Ki Dua
So whether you get engaged or not, intend by wearing a ring emulation of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. If you choose to wear a carnelian (‘Aqiq) ring, make the basis of that decision the aforementioned rigorously authenticated (Sahih) tradition related by Muslim and others, in which one sound interpretation of an Abyssinian stone was carnelian.
And ALLAH knows best and He alone gives success (Tawfiq).
There are so many Da’if hadith found regarding gemstones in Islam. Therefore, there is no such recommendation by Our Prophet to wear any ring including red carnelian. However, there is no harm and sin to wear red carnelian (‘Aqiq), especially from Abyssinia and Yemen.
Even, I have been wearing a red carnelian from Yemen in a silver ring in my right hand, Masha ALLAH. I have been wearing Yemen’s red carnelian in a silver as a Sunnah.
Wear it as Sunnah not for good luck!
Hadith 4 About Wearing GemStones & Rings
Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father who said:
“Umar bin Al-Khattab addressed the Corner (Black Stone) saying, ‘By ALLAH! I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit nor harm. Had I not seen the Prophet touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you.’
Then he kissed it and said, ‘There is no reason for us to do Ramal (in Tawaf) except that we wanted to show off before the pagans, and now ALLAH has destroyed them.’ ‘Umar added, ‘(Nevertheless), the Prophet did that and we do not want to leave it (i.e. Ramal).’ Duas for Good Matrimonial Relationship
In Bukhari Shareef Book #2, Volume #26, Hadith #675
Wearing Gemstones Mentioned in Quran or Not?
In Islam, the only unforgiven sin is including partner with ALLAH Zille Shanahu. Unfortunately, this is widely misunderstood by most of the Muslims.
Including partner or Idol worship is not just worshiping a statue like non-Muslims do. Whereas, It also sums up to the belief that anyone regarding anything that can help or harm us other than ALLAH Subhanahu Wata ‘Ala. Stated in The Noble Qur’an Chapter #5 Surah Al-Maidah, Verse #76.
Having faith that anyone other than ALLAH Ta’ala can help you or harm you is as same as including partners to ALLAH, idol worship. Therefore, if somebody believes a gemstone can help them. A black meteorite can remove a person’s sins. Then, they are idol worshiping an inanimate object beside ALLAH Ta’ala. Which is absolutely a shirk!
