What is the correct way for males to wear a silver ring according to Sunnah?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
I know it is Sunnah to wear a silver ring for males. Could you provide which hand and finger it should be worn on, and whether the stone should be on the outside or inside of the hand. I was told that it should be on the inside, is this correct?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

Which hand and finger should the ring be worn:

It is preferable to wear it on the right hand.

‘Ali bin Abi Taalib Radiyallahu ‘Anhu says: “Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) wore his ring in the right hand”. (Shamail Tirmidhi)

Imam Nawawi says that it is Sunnah and according to Ijmaa'(concensus) to wear the ring on the smallest finger and to wear it on any other finger is disliked.

Where should the stone be facing:

It is stated in the ‘Badh-lul-Majhud’ and ‘Mirqaatus-Su’ud’ that it is more correct to wear the top part of the ring facing the inside (towards the palms). This has also been stated in many narrations. Also, Allamah Munaawi says that this is best because it protects the stone and saves one from pride and high mindedness.
