Using silver utensils unlawful
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: .my question was " can we used silver metal spoon or other making food thing like pot, jug etc." please let me according Quran & Sunnah"
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.537 Narrated by Hudhaifa
The Prophet (saws) said, "Do not (eat or) drink in gold or silver utensils, and (the believing men) do not wear clothes of silk or Dibaj, for these things are for them (disbelievers) in this world and for you (believers) in the Hereafter."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.538 Narrated by Um Salamah, Umm al-Mumineen
That she heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: "He who drinks in silver utensils is only filling his abdomen with Hell Fire."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.331 Narrated by Al Bara bin Azib
That the Messenger of Allah (saws) forbade us (the believers) to use silver utensils and dishes, and (for the believing men) to wear golden rings, silk (clothes), Dibaj (pure silk cloth), Qissi and Istabraq (two kinds of silk cloths).
The Messenger of Allah (saws) strictly forbade the believing men and the believing women who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day to use, eat, or drink anything from a gold or silver utensil.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
