Qabs al-Nur al-Mubin

Ustadh Farid Dingle is asked about the permissibility of wearing watches with minute amounts of gold on the face or the movements.

 

Question:

Assalam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh.

Islam forbids men from wearing any gold. Is it halal to wear a stainless steel watch with gold on the hands? What if there’s no gold on the outside of the watch, but there’s gold used in the inside movement of the watch? I heard even some smart watches use gold in the components.

I would like to know the Islamic point of view on these questions.

I’ve been thinking about buying a particular watch that has a small amount of gold on the dial, when no gold can touch the hand.
 

 

Answer:

Wa alaykum assaalam wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh.

Dear questioner,

If the gold is only atoms think, which is often case, and it is such that a goldsmith could not extract any real among of gold from it, then it would be perfectly fine. (Bushra al-Karim)

If you ask the company, I’m almost certain that’s what they will tell you.

I pray this helps.

Farid
