Possessing pens made of Gold or Silver

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

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

Answer:
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.]
