Question

Is wearing necklaces with the name of Allah on it permissible for men?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful

 

Answer:

It is not lawful for men to make use of any type of jewellery except for a silver ring.[1] Wearing a ring is a sunnah only when it is worn at the time of necessity such as when a judge or author wears it for stamping. When it is worn without necessity, it is permissible though it will not be considered a Sunnah.

 

Also, a silver ring should not be more than one mithqāl (approx. 2.9 grams). That said, wearing a necklace/pendant is not permissible for men.

 

Only Allāh knows best
