▪️Ruling on wearing jewellery with spouse’s name ▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam – may Allaah preserve him – was asked the following question:

? Question: –

The questioner says: What is the ruling on writing the husband’s name on the gold pendants that a woman wears, and vice versa; the husband writing his wife’s name on his ring?

? Answer: –

These acts involve resembling the disbelievers, and this (resembling the disbelievers) is not permissible (based on the hadeeth): “whoever resembles a people is one of them”.

If they believe it is a reason which brings about love, then it is feared that this (belief) enters into minor shirk; because they’ve set something which isn’t a (proven) means (in bringing about love) as a means (for that).
