Tighten your wrist watch brother! – Shaykh Hamood ibn Abdullah At Tuwaijiree (Revised and Corrected)

Tighten your wrist watch brother! (Revised and Corrected)

The scholar Shaykh Hamood ibn Abdullah At Tuwaijiree—may Allah have mercy upon him—said:

Also from the evil phenomena are the men wearing watches on their wrists like women bracelets! The man who wears a watch combines imitating the women, imitating the Europeans, and other than them from the enemies of Allah the Exalted, and imitating the inhabitants of the fire; because iron will be the adornment for the inhabitants of the fire.

And the Shaykh said:

And most of them wear their watches on their wrists like women bracelets; while the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم has cursed the men who imitate women.

Collected by Ahmad and others, from the hadith of ibn Abbass, At Tirmidi declared it Hassan Saheeh.

Source: Al Qawlul al-Muharrar concerning the affair of enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. (Page 131 and pages 14-15)

Translator’s note: A brother—may Allah reward him with an abundance of good—pointed out a mistake in my initial translation of the Shaykh words. It should have read:

“The man who wears a watch combines imitating the women, imitating the Europeans, and other than them from the enemies of Allah the Exalted, and imitating the inhabitants of the fire; because iron will be the adornment for the inhabitants of the fire.”

This is based upon the Shaykh’s view that wearing watches is Haraam due to it imitating the people of the fire.

To see the view of many other scholars who say wearing watches in permissible see link below…

Here is what Shaykh Fawzan said:

Question:

I heard one of the scholars said wearing watches is haram because it is the adornment of the inhabitants of the fire, what is your view concerning this statement? Is there any proof for this from the Book and the Sunnah?

Shaykh Fawzan:

We do not know any proof for this statement from the Book and the Sunnah. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said to a man, ‘look for a ring even if it is from iron.’ The man who wanted to marry a woman and he did not have a dowry; the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said to him, ‘search for a ring even if is from iron’. This is proof that wearing iron is permissible; whether it is a ring, or other than that. And watches are clothing, watches are clothing and the principle in clothing is permissibility except for where there is a proof of its impermissibility; such as gold watches for men, or watches that contain gold for men. We refuse it because it is only specific for women. As for watches free of gold then we do not know of any proof of its impermissibility. Yes some of the people were frightened away from them when they appeared, they disapproved of them, but when it became clear that there was no proof of it being impermissible, and it was clothing, and the principle in clothing is it is permissible; then there is no problem with it. InshaAllah.

قال العلامة الشيخ/ حمود بن عبد الله التويجري

ومن المنكرات الظاهرة أيضًا تحلي الرجال بالساعات في أيديهم كأنها أساور النساء, والمتحلى بالساعة قد جمع بين التشبه بالنساء والتشبه بالإفرنج وغيرهم من أعداء الله تعالى، والتشبه بأهل النار؛ لأن الحديد حلية أهل النار. اهـ

المرجع: كتاب القول المحرر في الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر (ص/131

وقال الشيخ حمود التويجري رحمه الله

وغالبهم يتحلون بالساعات في أيديهم كأنها أساور النساء، وقد لعن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم المتشبهين من الرجال بالنساء رواه الإمام أحمد، وأبو داود الطيالسي والبخاري وأهل السنن إلا النسائي من حديث ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما، وقال الترمذي: هذا حديث حسن صحيح

نص السؤال: سمعت من أحد المشايخ أن لبس الساعة حرام لأنها حلية أهل النار ، فما رأيكم في هذا القول ، وهل عليه دليل من الكتاب والسنة ؟

الجواب:

لا نعلم لهذا القول دليلا من الكتاب والسنة، النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لرجلٍ التمس خاتما ولو من حديد، الرجل الذي أراد أن يتزوج امرأة وليس عنده مهرا، قال له النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم التمس ولو خاتما من حديد فدل أن لبس الحديد جائز، من الخاتم وغيره والساعة من اللباس، الساعة من اللباس، والأصل في اللباس الإباحة إلا ما دلَّ الدليل على تحريمه كساعة الذهب للرجال أو الساعة التي فيها ذهب للرجال هذا نرفضه لأنه خاص بالنساء فقط أما الساعة الخالية من الذهب فلا نعلم لتحريمها دليلا، نعم استنفرها بعض الناس لما ظهرت، استنكروها، لكن لما تبين لهم أنه ما فيه دليل على التحريم وأنها من اللباس وأن الأصل في اللباس الإباحة فهذا لابأس به ان شاء الله. نعم
