Is wearing a chain haram for men?


Answer

 

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Yes, wearing a chain, regardless of its size or metal composition is impermissible for men. [i]

 

This is because chains, necklaces, and earrings are for the beautification of women, and it is not allowed for men to imitate women or vice-versa [ii]:

 

The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) cursed those men

who imitate women and those women that imitate men.”

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
