Possessing pens made of Gold or Silver

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Are men allowed to have pens made of solid gold? Solid silver?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Wa Alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful & Compassionate

It is not permitted for men or women to use things (such as pens) made of gold or silver. [Nahlawi, al-Durar al-Mubaha; Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar] Jewellry from gold and silver is permitted for women, not men. [ibid.]
