Can men wear earrings ?

Men’s getting their ears pierced and wearing earrings is totally impermissible. Wearing earrings makes one similar to women in appearance. There is a Hadith:Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them), he says that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has cursed those men who try to resemble women and on those women who try to resemble men. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 5546).

Thus young guys’ wearing earrings or the like is impermissible. Earrings are permissible only for women as adornment. As mentioned in Radd Ul Muhtaar.

And Allah The Absolute and The Eternal knows best.
