Q.) Is it proper to wear birthstone rings in the belief that they protect from evil and save from misfortune? [Asma Khan]

A.) Allah Ta'ala is the absolute protector from evil and misfortune. It is incorrect to believe that the birthstone will protect one from evil. Wearing the birthstone with that intention is incorrect. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
