Gem Stones..

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verses160:

If Allah helps you,  none can overcome you!  And if Allah forsakes you,  who is there, then, after Allah that can help you?  Therefore,  the true believers should trust in Allah Alone..

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 106-107:

And do not call besides Allah,  any being that can neither do you any good nor any harm.  For if you will do so,  you shall be one of the doers of wrong.  If Allah afflicts you with a calamity,  there is none to remove it,  but He Himself.  Likewise,  if Allah wills to bestow a favor on you,  there is none to withhold Allah’s bounty.   He bestows His bounty on anyone of His servants He wills.  And He is The Forgiving,  The Merciful.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17:

17   If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2:

2   What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind, there is none who can withhold: what He doth withhold, there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom.

in Islam, everything, absolutely everything that takes place in the Universe happens with the precise Will and Permission of Allah Subhanah Alone, for He Alone is the Owner of All Strength and All Power.

Allah is our witness , no stone, no stars, no lines in one palms, no nothing except Allah Subhanah our Lord has the Power to bring about any good or harm on its own!

To believe that some stones (or anything else in creation) can bring about any good to someone in the ‘unseen’, or to believe some stones (or anything else) can save one from any harm, or some stones (or anything else) have the power by themselves to influence absolutely anything in one’s lives or one’s behavior, etc….is a manifest act of disbelief and ‘shirk’!  Nothing, absolutely nothing in the Universe has the Power or the Strength or the Ability to bring about any good or harm upon anyone in the ‘unseen’ except the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme Alone; thus the believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day should keep their full trust and belief in Him and Him Alone.

Sahih Muslim Hadith 133      Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said:  “Don’t you know what your Lord said?    Your Lord observed:  ‘I (Allah)  have never endowed My bondsmen with a favor,  but a section amongst them disbelieved it,  and said: stars, it was due to the stars!’”

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4224 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

The Prophet (saws) said: ‘If anyone wants to put a ring of fire on one he loves, let him put a gold ring on him: if anyone wants to put a necklace of fire on one he loves, let him put a gold necklace on him, and if anyone wants to put a bracelet of fire on one he loves let him put a gold bracelet on him. Keep to silver and amuse yourselves with it!’

Although it is not recommended or encouraged in Islam for the believers to wear any jewelry only as an adornment of beauty, if one sincerely wishes or desires to wear a ring for any reason, it should be made of silver.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.774         Narrated by Ibn Abbas

The Prophet invoked the curse of Allah on the effeminate men (those men who imitate or assume the manners or characteristics of women) and those women who assume the manners (and characteristics) of men.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.276         Narrated by Anas bin Malik

When the Prophet (saws) intended to write to the Byzantines, the people said, “They do not read a letter unless it is sealed (stamped).”  Therefore the Prophet (saws) took a silver ring–as if I am looking at its glitter now–and its engraving was: “Muhammad, Messenger of Allah.”

It is indeed a fact that the Messenger of Allah (saws) wore a silver ring, but that was only when he had established an Islamic State in Madinah, and the ring was used as a seal during his correspondence with the leaders of other tribes.  There is absolutely no evidence that the Messenger of Allah (saws) wore the ring or any other form of jewelry prior to his becoming the leader of the Islamic State in Madinah.

Adornment and aids of beauty (like make-up, jewelry, chains, bangles, ear-rings, etc.) are a characteristic specific to the womenfolk, and it absolutely does not behove a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to adorn himself with something that enhances the beauty of women!http://www.Gowister.com

The primary purpose of the Qur’aan is to guide mankind to Allaah, so that they will affirm His Oneness and worship Him alone, and attain His Paradise and His pleasure. The Qur’aan is not a book of science, medicine or astronomy, even though its verses may contain a little of such things.

Hence the Muslim should not let himself be distracted from the greater purpose of reciting the Qur’aan and look for the number of stones or rivers or kinds of animals mentioned therein.

Some precious stones such as rubies, pearls and coral are mentioned in the Qur’aan. 

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“(In beauty) they are like rubies and coral”

[al-Rahmaan 55:58] 

“Out of them both come out pearl and coral”

[al-Rahmaan 55:22] 

“Like unto preserved pearls”

[al-Waaqi’ah 56:23] 

“And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think them scattered pearls”

[al-Insaan 76:19]

These stones do not have any spiritual significance, rather they are mentioned in the Qur’aan to explain the blessings that Allaah has bestowed upon His slaves, of the seas and the things that are brought forth from them, or as a metaphor – so al-hoor al-‘iynare likened to rubies, coral and preserved pearls, combining the purity of rubies and the whiteness of pearls and coral.

The boys are likened to scattered pearls, to indicate their beauty and good looks.

And Allaah knows best.  http://islamqa.info/en/33583
