Can women wear Aqeeq

All praise is due to God, the Lord of the Worlds besides whom there is no God, the King of kings and creator of all things. All blessings and peace be upon the most holy Prophet and Messenger, our mentor and master Abul Qasim Al Muhammad (ص) and his pure flawless and holy family.
All curse is due to their enemies from the day they wronged you without regret.

It is very praiseworthy to wear a ring on your right hand, although there are also some traditions that allow the ring to be worn on the left hand. However, if there is a special stone set in the ring or has a sacred engraving, it should be removed before going to the toilet.

Salman Al Muhammadi (ع) narrates a conversation that took place between the Holy Prophet Muhammad (ص) and Imam Ali (ع) in which the Holy Prophet (ص) gave some instructions on how to wear rings. The Holy Prophet (ص) recommended to the Imam (ع) to wear the ring on his right hand, by doing this one is counted among the Muqarrabin (those who are closest to God). When Imam Ali (AS) asked who the muqarabin were, the Holy Prophet announced that the muqarrabin are angels Jibrail (Gabriel) and angel Mikail (Michael). Imam Ali (as) also asked which rings he (as) should wear, the holy prophet recommended him (as) to wear a ring in which a red aqiq (carnelian) is set, as this stone represents the unity of God (Tawhid), the prophethood of Hz. Muhammad (ص), the representative of the holy Imam (Wilayat / Khilafat) has confirmed Imam Ali's (ع) and further that the paradise for the friends and Shia's Imam is Ali's.

Citing another tradition from Imam Musa Al Kazim (as) it was once asked why Imam Ali (as) wore the ring on his right hand. The Imam (a) replied that there were two reasons for this:

1. Imam Ali (ع) is the leader of the As7ab ul Yamin (7 = first letter of the name Hassan) on the day of the resurrection. The As7ab ul Yamin are the righteous people who hold their book of deeds in their right hand on this fateful day.

2. Because it was the sunnah (procedure) of the holy prophet. Holy Prophet Muhammad () himself wore the ring on his right hand.

Then the Imam (as) said that his Shia are identified by the following features:

1. Wearing the ring on the right hand
2. Performing the 5 prayers at the time when it is most excellent
3. Paying the zakat
4. The distribution of his belongings among his Mu'minien (convinced) brothers and sisters
5. Carrying out the Amr Bil Ma’ruf (areas of good). Do good deeds yourself and encourage others to do the same
6. Carrying out Nahi 'an al Munkar (denying evil). Not only keep yourself away from the bad, but include others

Regarding Imam Djafar As Sadiq (as) that he said:
The Holy Prophet Muhammad () wore the ring on his index finger on his right hand, whereas the Holy Prophet had forbidden to wear the ring on the middle finger. Whereby the imam (a) gave the instruction to wear the ring at the base of the finger if possible.

Regarding Fiq Riza, it is said that the following supplication should be recited while putting on a ring:

اللهم سومنى بسيما الايمان و اختم لى بخير و اجعل عاقبتى الى خير انك انت العزيز الحكيم الكريم

Tradition related to the metal of the ring

It is praiseworthy (for the man) to wear the ring made of silver. It is strictly forbidden for men to wear gold rings. It is frowned upon for women and men to wear the ring made of other iron, steel or brass. Narrated by Imam Djafar as Sadiq (ع) that the holy Prophet Muhammad (ص) wore the ring made of silver.

Another tradition says that the Holy Prophet (ص) forbade wearing a ring made of any iron (not silver) during prayer and generally forbidden, the Holy Prophet has the wearing of rings made of brass.

Aqiq (German Carnelian)

Regarding a reliable narration from Imam Ali ar Riza (a.s.): wearing a ring with an aqiq in it not only keeps away poverty, but also removes ill feelings and dissolves differences from the hearts.

Appealed to Imam Djafar As Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: "If this stone is worn during a journey, it ensures your own safety"

Another tradition says that Imam Ali (AS) used to wear 4 rings.
A ring with a yaqut (ruby) for beauty and dignity.

The second with a firuza (turquoise) for receiving divine help and victory.

The third with a hadid chini (Chinese hematite) for strength

and the fourth with an aqiq (carnelian) to protect himself from enemies and all kinds of misfortune.

Citing a reliable tradition from Bashir Dahhan that he once asked Imam Muhamma Al Baqir (as) which stone he should set in his ring. Thereupon the Imam (as) asked him why he did not have a red, yellow or white aqiq (carnelian) set around him, since mountains made of these three stones are in paradise. These mountains provide shade over the palaces of the Holy Prophet (ص), Bibi Fatima () and Imam Ali () or are on the horizon, they praise and glorify Almighty God forever. The tradition is long and it ends with the Imam (as) saying that if a Shia wears a ring with one of these three aqiqs (carnelian), he will benefit from it, his livelihood (risq) will increase, he will before Be protected from hazards, disasters, calamities and accidents. It will also be a protection in frightening and terrible circumstances, e.g. when facing a tyrant or during oppression.

Another tradition says that a prayer performed with an aqiq (carnelian) is better than a thousand prayers without aqiq (carnelian).

It is narrated from Imam Muhammad Al Baqir (a.s.) that if a person has a ring with an aqiq (carnelian) in it, the first thing in the morning he looks at his aqiq (carnelian) while it is turned towards the palm and the By reciting Surah Al Qadr and a small supplication (see below), God will protect him from all kinds of calamities and dangers. Whether it is from heaven or earth and he will be under the protection of God and His friends all day long.

1. Sura Qadr
2. Little dua:

امنت بالله وحده لا شريك له و كفرت بالجبت و الطاغوت و امنت بسر ال محمد و علانيتهم ​​و هاهر م لو م وروطن

Another tradition says that if a person has a ring set with aqiq (carnelian) in the following engraving, God will save him from a bad death and he will die as a faithful believer. This engraving reads:

محمد نبى الله و على ولى الله

(Mohammad the Prophet of Allah and Ali the Friend of Allah)

My note:
Of course, that doesn't mean to neglect everything else when in possession of such a ring. It should be a mercy from God that if the dying person is already a sincere mu'min and dies, he gets more honor through this ring.

Yaqut (ruby), Zaberjad (jade) and Zamarrud (emerald)

Appealing to three reliable traditions that Imam Ali ar Riza (as) said: "Wearing a ring with a yaqut (ruby) makes fears and worries disappear."

Appeals to Imam Musa Kazim (as) that wearing a ring with Yaqut (ruby) solves problems, eases hardships and difficulties.

Another tradition of Imam Riza (as) says that a ring with Zaberjad (jade) in it brings similar advantages. Imam Riza (as) also said that wearing a ring studded with zamarrud (emerald) turns poverty into wealth and wearing a ring studded with a yellow yaqut (ruby) keeps poverty away from you.

When the enemies of God put the noose on the Prophet Ibrahim (as) to throw him into the fire, they aroused Gabriel's anger. When God inquired about the cause of his anger, Gabriel the Almighty replied that Ibrahim was not only His friend but also the only one on earth who testifies to the oneness of God and yet God let his enemies overpower him. Thereupon God commanded Gabriel not to interfere in divine things, so that impatience is only shown by those who are helpless, and whoever shows fear during this time will make the mistake of running out of time and not acting quickly enough. God said further that Ibrahim (as) is His creation and He can free him from the threatening danger whenever He wants. Then Gabriel turned directly to Ibrahim (as) to ask him if he should help him. Ibrahim (as) said that he does indeed need help, but not from Gabriel. Immediately God sent a ring studded with a zamarrud (emerald) down to Ibrahim (as) and commanded him to wear the ring. When he did this, it was that the fire had become cold for Ibrahim, but not that it was uncomfortable. The following engraving was on the zamarrud:

لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله و لا حول و لا قوة الا بالله فوضت امرى الى الله اهلىدت ر الى ل

(There is no god but God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God, there is no power and strength except with God. I have entrusted my business to God and I rely on God. God is enough for me)

Firuza (turquoise) and Jaz e Yamani (German name unknown)

Appealed to Imam Djafar As Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: "If a person wears a ring with a firuza (turquoise), he will never be dependent on others."

Hassan ibn Ali ibn Mahran reports that he once visited Imam Musa Kazim (as) and saw the Imam wearing a ring set with a firuza (turquoise). The Firuza (turquoise) was engraved as follows:

لله الملك
(Rulership is for god)

When Hassan ibn Ali ibn Mahran stared at the ring for a long time, the Imam asked what was going on. Hassan replies that Imam Amir Al Mu'minin Ali (as) used to wear a similar ring. The Imam then asked if Hassan recognized the ring, but Hassan said no. The Imam revealed to him that this ring is the same ring that he had seen on Imam Ali (AS) and that the stone (Firuza) set in the ring is from Gabriel and was given to the Holy Prophet as a gift. The Holy Prophet (ص) bequeathed it to Imam Ali (ع). It was passed on from generation to generation, so that it came to the Imam through his holy grandfathers.

Citing a tradition from Imam Ali Ar Riza (ع) that Imam Ali Al Murtaza (ع) relates that one day the Holy Prophet Muhammad (ص) came out of his house and wore a ring with a jaz e Yamani in it and with the Ring offered a prayer. When the Holy Prophet () had finished his prayer, he took the ring and gave it to Imam Ali (ع) with instructions to wear the ring on his right hand when he prays, because a prayer which is performed with a Jaz e Yamani will be worth as much as 70 prayers. This stone ceaselessly glorifies God and testifies to the unity of God by always uttering the testimony “There is no God but God” and “Praised is God”, while the reward is always attributed to the one who wears the ring.

Ali ibn Muhammad Zumayri said that he was very fond of his wife, who was the daughter of Djafar ibn Mahmud, but unfortunately she could not have children. Consequently, Ali ibn Zumayri turned to Imam Ali to Naqi (as) to entrust the Imam with his problem. When he told him about his worries, the Imam smiled and instructed him to wear a ring with a firuza (turquoise) engraved on it:

رب لا تذرنى فرد او انت خير الوارثين

(Oh my lord! Don't leave me alone (with problems) since you are the best heir)

Ali ibn Zumayri followed the instructions of the Imam (ع) and it was not even a year that his wife had given birth to him.

Appealed to the holy prophet Muhammad (ص), if a person prays to God while wearing rings in which a firuza (turquoise) and an aqiq (carnelian) are set, God does not leave the prayers unanswered. (God will surely answer the prayer)
