Can diamonds be lucky or unlucky?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamualaykkum..

Mufti Saheb, can diamonds be lucky or unlucky? I have heard that diamonds are lucky for some people (good things happen in their life if they own/wear it), while it is unlucky for some people (bad things happen in their life if they own/wear it). Can you please answer in the light of Quran and Hadith?

Jazak Allah Khair

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

Diamonds are simply precious stones with values varying according to their strengths and qualities.

 

It is a superstitious belief that diamonds are lucky for some people and unlucky for others. [i] 

 

As Muslims, we believe, that every good and bad is with the Will of Almighty Allah

 

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
