Ruling on wearing abayahs in which there are threads of gold
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 the yellow strings on men’s outer garments? Some think that these strings are mixed with gold.

People with experience were previously asked about what is on the edges of abayahs of threads and adornments which those who see them may imagine to be gold, and they said that there is no gold at all in them. Based on that, wearing an abayah which has this adornment on its edges is permissible. Assuming that there is any gold in it, it is little, so it is also permissible, , but if it is certain that there is a lot of gold in it, then it is haraam to wear it.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
