Wearing a Watch, right or left hand?

Wearing a Watch

How to wear a watch according to Islamic teaching?

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allan be upon His messenger, amma ba’du,

Which is the more appropriate according to sunnah, to wear a watch on the right hand, or on the left hand?

Below is the answer provided by Dr. Sa’d al Khatslan – member of the Council of Grand Scholars of Saudi Arabia –

الذي يظهر أن الساعة كالخاتم فقد يلبس للتزين وقد يلبس للانتفاع به في أمور أخرى ، وقد صح عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه تختم في اليد اليمنى وفي اليد اليسرى ، وقد اختلف العلماء في التوفيق بينها

From what we inferred is that a watch is like ring, which is sometimes worn as adornment or because of certain benefit. And there is a sound hadith from the Prophet –peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- which says that sometimes the Prophet wore his ring on his right hand, and sometimes on the left. The scholars’ opinion in drawing a conclusion from the difference of this narration is divided.

وأحسن ماقيل في ذلك ماذكره الحافظ ابن حجر حيث قال : (ويظهر لي أن ذلك يختلف باختلاف القصد، فإن كان اللبس للتزين به فاليمين أفضل، وإن كان للتختم به فاليسار أولى لأنه كالمودع فيها، ويحصل تناوله منها باليمين وكذا وضعه فيها ( فتح الباري 10/327)

The best explanation is what provided by al Hafidz Ibn Hajar in “Fath al Bari”, in which he said,

Ruling of Working at Disbeliever’s Place

Author: ustadz Ammi Nur Baits

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du,

Islam allows its followers to interact with disbelievers. Moreover, this tradition was commonly done by the Messenger of Allah – peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- and his companions. They interacted socially and economically with jews around Medina. And before that, the muslims had also interacted with the disbelievers of Quraish who were their arc enemy.

Imam Bukhari wrote a chapter in his book of valid hadith, ,

باب الشراء والبيع مع المشركين وأهل الحرب

Ruling of Selling by Credit without Setting The Price

Assalamu’alaikum. Ustadz, in my village, there’s a practice of rice trading in which the farmer sells his rice with due time system, that is, the buyer/collector will pay its price after a year, with the highest price of rice at that time. Thus for example, the crop in January 2014 was immediately sold, but the payment will be received on December 2014 with the price that is determined by the seller, according to the highest price of rice in 2014. The farmers are delighted with this practice since they are not having trouble to stock their rice anymore. And the buyers are happy because they get additional capital to turnover for a year.

What is the ruling of this system, is it allowed or not?

May Allah reward you greatly, wassalam.

Ruling of Recording and Presenting Witness in Debt

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du.

Islam urges that transaction of debt that takes place among people should be recorded. Allah decreed,

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا تَدَايَنْتُمْ بِدَيْنٍ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى فَاكْتُبُوهُ وَلْيَكْتُبْ بَيْنَكُمْ كَاتِبٌ بِالْعَدْلِ وَلَا يَأْبَ كَاتِبٌ أَنْ يَكْتُبَ كَمَا عَلَّمَهُ اللَّهُ فَلْيَكْتُبْ وَلْيُمْلِلِ الَّذِي عَلَيْهِ الْحَقُّ وَلْيَتَّقِ اللَّهَ رَبَّهُ وَلَا يَبْخَسْ مِنْهُ شَيْئًا

Believers! Whenever you contract a debt from one another for a known term, commit it to writing. Let a scribe write it down between you justly, and the scribe may not refuse to write it down according to what Allah has taught him; so let him write, and let the debtor dictate; and let him fear Allah, his Lord, and curtail no part of it. (Chapter al Baqara/The Cow:282)
