I notice they sell a lot of Islamic jewelry.. Man of these pieces have surahs from the Qur'an or the name of Allah (SWT) on them.
Are these pieces halal? I can only think that most people probably don't remember to take off such rings and/or necklaces (even earrings on some sisters) when they use the bathroom.. The same goes for some t-shirts they sell with Islamic sayings on them.
So.. Is Islamic jewelry halal? If yes, what are the rules regarding it, or does anything go? Do we treat it with the same respect we treat anything with Qur'anic verse and/or Allah's name on it?
Also.. Would jewelry be considered a 'charm' or 'talisman' as some people believe these items are protective? If you are like me and you just think they are beautiful and also a sign of remembrance, are they still considered 'talismans'? Or, is it only considered that if you give them that kind of power? (Because, sometimes you'll see people driving with 'protective' verses hanging from their rear-view mirrors)
Thank you in advance for any thoughts and suggestions, and also thank you for just reading this!
