f:1190 -    Can men wear earrings
Country : Hyderabad,
Name : Shaykh Mahboob Ali
Question:     On the occasion of ‘Eid, I saw a youngster wearing earrings.  I advised him against it, but he didn’t listen to me.  I have seen other youngsters also wearing earrings.  I want to ask you whether it is permissible for any male to get his ears pierced and wear earrings.
............................................................................
Answer:     Men’s getting their ears pierced and wearing earrings is totally impermissible.  Wearing earrings makes one similar to women in appearance.  There is a Hadith:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them), he says that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has cursed those men who try to resemble women and on those women who try to resemble men.  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 5546).

Thus young guys’ wearing earrings or the like is impermissible.  Earrings are permissible only for women as adornment.  As mentioned in Radd Ul Muhtaar.

And Allah The Absolute and The Eternal knows best.
