Is wearing a ring sunna? And a shawl?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

I know that a male can not wear a silver ring for adornment. However, If one wears the ring which is similar to the one which the beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon him) wore, is this permissible? Also, wearing a shawl is that a Sunnah action?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this finds you well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good and success in this life and the next.

In the Hanafi school, wearing a ring is not a sunna, unless one needs it as a seal. Rather, it is best to not wear rings. [ Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar; Mawsuli, al-Ikhtiyar ]

It is established that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) at least sometimes wore a shawl. As such, one would be rewarded if one followed him in this matter, with intention.

And Allah alone gives success.
