Remaining State of Charm Bracelets (Superstitious Belief)

Question: Charms on bracelets originated from superstitious beliefs now they are used mostly for fashion. Will it be permissible to wear such bracelets using inanimate pendants for the intention of fashion?


Assalamu Alaikum,

Although these may be presently used for fashion, yet, their origin remains the same. It is still understood and believed by many people that certain pendants are worn for specific reasons, generally believed to ward off evil spirits or bad luck. Such bracelets and pendants should not be worn by Muslims. It will not be permissible.

And Allah Knows best.
