Exchanging of wedding rings.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Q. Can you please advise if wedding rings are normally exchanged during the Nikah or is the ceremony performed without the exchange of rings?


A. The exchange of wedding rings is not a part of the Nikah ceremony. Exchanging these rings in public is opposed to the teachings of Islam and it is the custom of non-Muslims. Muslims are required to refrain from this unIslamic practice.

If both parties of the marriage wish to give each other a ring on the occasion of their marriage, then this is permissible. However, exchanging the rings to each other by placing it on the finger of the other spouse must not be done in public. This should be done in private.

And Allah knows best.
