Remembrance of Allah is the true source of peace..

Soo..  oldshaykh 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!

I try to remember to count my blessings each day because I have many:

To be thankful for my health, and that of my loved ones, the presence of my husband and the continuation of our marriage, that we can pay our bills and have food on the table..

So many blessings but often, so little thanks!

Asalamualaikum wrt wb,

All praise be to Allah.

It appears from your question that by your fitra you know the ruling on these pieces of jewelry, mashaAllah.  The scholars say:


It is not prescribed to write Aayat al-Kursiy or the name of Allaah on pieces of gold that are to be worn, because that is a kind of disrespect. It may also be an imitation of the Jews and Christians who hang up or wear things that they revere, such as the cross etc.

There is a concession allowing writing names on rings, even if the name includes the name of Allaah, such as Abd-Allaah or ‘Abd al-Rahmaan. Similarly there is nothing wrong with writing useful words on a ring even if they include the name of Allaah, such as al-hamdu Lillah (praise be to Allaah), tawakkaltu ‘ala Allaah (I put my trust in Allaah) etc. Many such reports have been narrated from the Sahaabah and Taabi’een.

The scholars were asked:

We sell hearts in which the name of Allaah is written, which are bought by Arabs and non-Arabs of every kind. We may tell the Arabs that it is haraam to take them into the toilet. Please advise us on the ruling on selling them.

They replied: Selling jewellery on which the name of Allaah is written is not permissible, unless it is erased from it.

They were also asked:

We attach with out letter some gold jewellery on which is written the name of Allaah. This jewellery is used by our Muslim women as an adornment only. A while ago our brothers told us that using this jewellery is haraam, because the name of Allaah is written on it. We tell you that this jewellery is only used by Muslims as an adornment, unlike the women of the Jews and Christians, as the Christians wear jewellery on which there are pictures of the cross and images of idols, and the Jews wear jewellery on which there are pictures of the star of David. We hope that you can explain this issue. 

They replied as follows:

Since this jewellery has the name of Allaah written on it and is intended for Muslim women to wear around their necks, as Christian women wear a cross and Jewish women wear a star of David, and since things on which the name of Allaah is written may be worn to ward off harm or bring benefits, or for other purposes, and wearing it may expose it to disrespect such as if a person sleeps in it and rolls on top of it, or wears it in places where it is makrooh to take anything in which is written the words of Allaah or the name of Allaah, the committee thinks that it is not permissible to use this jewellery on which the name of Allaah is written, so as to avoid imitation of the Christians and Jews whom the Muslims are forbidden to imitate, and so as to block the means that may lead to evil, and so as to protect the name of Allaah from disrespect, and because of the general meaning of the prohibition on wearing amulets.

And Allah knows best.

Be merciful to those on earth, and the One in the Heavens will be merciful to you.

It is a real matter about these jewelry, should pay great respect to the name of Allaah. but6 it is not good to remove our jewelry at the bathroom or other insecure places. so the easy thing to do is not to ware these jewelry. but it can't be done too. so there isn't a good solution yet.
