QUESTION:


        Is it permissible to wear Aqiq and or Feroz rings on your
        left hand??

        I have heard that it is not recommended to wear these stones
        on your left hand.

        Please clear this up for me, and if possible, please provide
        the references..

ANSWER:

        Yes it is permissible to wear rings on the left hand. Although,
there are several reports which favour wearing of rings on right hands, we
also have reports that some of the Imams (the frst three Imams) used to wear
rings on their left hands. What is not permissible, according to some
reports, is wearing rings on the middle finger.

God knows the best.

takhattum.", Tehran, 1972.
