anklets-(repeat) — it is not only about the sound it creates

Q: Assalaam O Alaikum,
I wear gold anklet which does not make any sound while I walk.  Is it allowed to wear it?
Thank you.

Answers: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِنْ زِينَتِهِنَّ وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

And (let woman not) stamp their feet so as to reveal what they conceal of their adornment. And turn unto Allah in unison, O believers, in order that you may succeed.

  • Anything that functions as an attractant towards strange men is forbidden. Wearing attractants whilst enticing strangers would function as ‘assisting towards evil’ which the Quran and sunnah prohibits.
  • A woman can wear anklets in front of non-strangers, — husband, etc.
  • If worn in public, it should be worn in a manner that does not attract attention and should be worn inside ones boots, inside sock and/or pant area to fulfill the criteria of not being a spectacle as well as not creating unwanted sounds/attention.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
