Wear gold on feet
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I HAVE A DOUBT FOR A LONG NUMBER OF YEARS, PLEASE CLARIFY IT.
ONE OF MY MUSLIM FRIEND TOLD ME THAT IT IS HARAM FOR THE MUSLIM LADIES TO WEAR GOLDEN ORNAMENTS IN THE LEGS LIKE GOLDEN ANKLETS, GOLDEN TOE RINGS ETC. IS THAT TRUE? I WILL BE PLEASED IF YOU ANSWER MY DOUBT.

Wear gold on feet
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Subhanah has permitted the believing woman to wear gold ornaments; and there is absolutely no harm if she wears them on her hands, her feet, or even on her head if she wishes to do so!
Only Allah and His Messenger (saws) have a right to declare a thing halaal or haraam in Islam. Any other person who declares a thing haraam, must be asked to produce their evidence from the Quran and Sunnah; and if they cannot produce their evidence from the Quran and Sunnah for a thing being declared haraam or forbidden in Islam; they should not be obeyed!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
