Selling gold rings to men

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
What is the ruling on selling gold rings that are designed to be worn by men, if the seller is certain that the buyer will wear it?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Selling gold rings to men, if the seller knows that the buyer is going to wear it or he thinks it most likely that he will wear it, it is haraam to sell it to him, because gold is forbidden to the males of this ummah. So if he knows or thinks it most likely that he will wear it, then he is helping in sin, and Allaah has forbidden us to help one another in sin and transgression, as He says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“Help you one another in Al‑Birr and At‑Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression”

[al-Maa’idah 5:2]

It is not permissible for a goldsmith to make gold rings to be worn by men. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
