Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team

Can one trade in non-Islamic religious symbols (cross, star of David etc.) and male jewelry, such as gold necklaces?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

As Shaykh Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari has written:

“…the legal maxim (qa’idah) is:

“Anything Haram to use by oneself is Haram to give to another.” (See: Ibn Nujaym, al-Ashbah; Majalla)

(End Quote)

Therefore trading in non-Islamic religious symbols and male jewelry (other than silver rings) would be impermissible.
