Ear Rings

Muslim males should not wear ear rings at all. Wearing ear rings is forbidden for Muslim males for two reasons:

Firstly, wearing ear rings has been generally a female custom and Muslim males should not imitate the females in their dress, walk and talk, just as Muslim females should not imitate the males.

The Prophet SAW cursed those men who imitate women and those women who imitate men. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Secondly, it is a known fact that the men who wear ear rings, especially in this day and age are generally people with queer character. The wearing of ear rings are often associated with homosexuals and morally perverse people.

No doubt that there are men who are with good morals but still wear ear rings. However, Muslims should try to resemble good, pious and righteous people. We must inform our youth who may become attracted to wear ear rings that this is against the teachings of Islam.
