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?

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