Wearing Hirz Jawad on the middle finger.


Can I wear Hirz e Jawad on middle finger of my right hand..??


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

In the book Hilyatul Muttaqin, there are different ahadith regarding wearing rings. It is recommended to wear the ring in the right hand according to different ahadith. In one of the hadith, Imam Sadiq(as) says: Prophet Muhammad(s.a.w.w) has forbidden wearing ring in the index and the middle finger. (Hilyatul Muttaqin, page 28)

So yes, you can wear it as it is not Haram. The most, what we can understand from the above hadith might be Makruh to wear in the middle finger, but not Haram.

One must be careful if the ring has attributes of Allah or the names of Masumeen(as), he must take it off while using bathroom and one cannot touch it without Wudhu.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
