Is it Permissible for men to wear White Gold?

Is it permissible to wear white gold for a man? Thanks


الحمد لله رب العالمين ، وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين، وبالله التوفيق

يحرم  على الرجل حلي الذهب (المنهاج: 1: (387

الذهب الأبيض قد يطلق على البلاتين و على خليط المعدني الذي جعل من الذهب مع أي المعدن الأبيض كان.

أما البلاتين هي ليست بذهب أحمر كما هو المعروف وليس فيه دليل يدل على تحريمه والأصل في الأشياء أنها على الإباحة إلا ما حظره الشرع (الورقات)

والذهب الأبيض التي هي الخليطة من الذهب الأصفر المعروف مع أحد المعدن الأبيض فأكثر وهذا لبسه للرجل حرام.

“It is not permissible for a man to wear jewelry made of gold.” [Minhaj 1:387]
The term “white gold” may be applied to the metal platinum or an alloy of gold and at least one white metal.  The metal platinum is not gold, and there is no indication to show the prohibition of its usage for a man, because of the principle ‘the basis of a thing is permissibility unless there is a prohibition of Islamic Law’.

However, the white gold, which is a mixture of gold with at least one white metal, falls within the rules of gold. Therefore, a man’s using it is forbidden.

والله أعلم وعلمه أتم
