Is It A Sin for A Muslim to Wear A Cross as An Ornament?
Is it wrong if I wear a cross as an ornament since it is a gift from my friend?
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said;
“He is not one of us who imitates people other than us. Do not imitate the Jews and Christians.” (Tirmidhi)
According to another version reported by Imam Ahmad: “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”
A proper Muslim should have characteristics of the Muslims with both his clothes and his attitudes. However, cross is a religious symbol of Christianity representing the crucifixion of Jesus and also a sign of their attachment to their beliefs and faithfulness.
Regarding the mentioned points, it is not permissible to wear something that reminds and imitates the beliefs of Christians even as an ornament. Kaynak: http://askaquestionto.us - Is It A Sin for A Muslim to Wear A Cross as An Ornament?
