Men and women fit gold teeth without being prescribed by the dentist

Question 10: I have some broken teeth. I want to replace them with alabaster teeth, but the dentist advised me to replace them with gold teeth, as using teeth made of any material other than gold will be harmful later. People say that it is not permissible to use gold teeth, therefore, I would like you to advise me regarding this matter. If a person dies and has a gold tooth, should it be left or removed? Please, enlighten us, and may Allaah grant you success!

Answer: It is permissible for you to use gold teeth if the dentist you consulted is skilled and sees that it is best for you, otherwise this is not permissible to use them… read more here.

Is the white gold permissible for men?

Question 5: It has become common among some people, especially men, to use what is called white gold, which is used to make watches, rings, pens, and so on. After asking the jewelers and goldsmiths, we found out that white gold is actually the well-known yellow gold, to which five to ten percent of a certain metal has been added to change its color from yellow to white, or to some other color, which makes it look like another kind of metal. The use of white gold has recently become very widespread, and many people are confused about using it. We hope your Eminence would give a Fatwaa about the ruling on using white gold; may Allaah reward you with the best for serving Islaam and the Muslims!

Answer: If the reality is as you have mentioned, the gold which is mixed with other metals still comes under the ruling that it is Haraam (prohibited)… read more here.

Is it Haraam (prohibited) for both men and women to wear Gold and Silver?

Question 4: I had a discussion with some of my colleagues on the matter of men wearing articles of clothing that include gold such as rings, watch straps, garment pins, and so on. Some considered the foregoing Haraam (prohibited) while some others considered it Halaal (lawful) and justified their opinion by saying that wearing the gold items mentioned above is the same as fitting gold teeth which is a widespread practice that people normally regard as Halaal. We have, thus, become confused! Please give us a Fatwaa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar) regarding this issue. May Allaah reward you with all the best for your support to us and the great services you provide for Muslims!

Answer: Using gold is Haraam for men whether it is in the form of a ring, a watch strap, a garment pin, or a tooth, and so on… read more here

Some tailoring shops for men’s clothes are using Silk to make T-shirts

Question 1: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon the final Prophet. The Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’ reviewed the question submitted to His Eminence the Muftee from the branch manager of the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (CPVPV) in `Asir, which was referred to the Committee by the Secretariat General of the Council of Senior Scholars, with no. (3879) on 8/8/1416 A.H. The following question was posed:

I hereby enclose the letter of His Eminence the chief of CPVPV in the district of Farshah, no. (44/ 170) on 25/7/1416 A.H., concerning what some members of the branch of Farshah have noticed that some tailoring shops for men’s clothes are using silk to make what is known in this district as Kartah (i.e. T-shirts). We know that the Messenger (peace be upon him) has prohibited men from wearing silk clothes and has made it permissible for women. However, a lot of men in this district heedlessly wear it, because they are ignorant of the religious rulings in this regard and only act according to the established customs. Thus, to rectify the situation, we hope that Your Eminence, as you are held high in people’s esteem, guide us in this matter and issue a Fatwaa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar) whereby this matter may be settled and we could distribute it throughout Tuhaamah where the matter may be widespread.

Answer: After studying the Fatwaa request, the Committee answered that it is not permissible for men to wear clothes made of silk, because Allaah (Exalted be He)… read more here.
