Wearing a ring with Arabic inscriptions

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If we wear a ring of stone like garnet or topaz in which some Arabic words are made, is it ok? Can I go to the wash room with the ring especially when some Arabic words /numbers are written in it or only wearing a ring without Arabic writing is permissible?


A: It is permissible to wear the ring. Don’t take it into the toilet.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
