Ruling on Wearing a Ring on the Middle and Index Finger

Many Sisters were wondering about the wearing of the rings and what is the ruling on it. For both men and women. So here it is!


What is the Ruling on Wear a Ring on the Index and Middle Fingers for Men and Women? 


As for the men, it is not legislated for them to wear a ring on the index and middle fingers, because of the hadeeth of 'Alee that was recorded by Imaam Muslim that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) prohibited us for wearing rings on the index and middle fingers. As for the women then the author of 'Awn al-Ma'bood reported from Imaam An-Nawawee that the Muslims agreed upon that, the Sunnah for the men is to wear the ring on the pinky finger and as for the woman she can wear a ring on any of the fingers.
