I was searching about importance of Toe Rings in Islam. They carry some importance in Hinduism. Married women wear it for various reasons. I also seen some Muslim women wearing them.
So I searched for some information in this. And Askimam.org has a question regarding this.
Is it permisable to wear toe-rings?
Are toe-rings, nose rings etc permitted? What if they have origin in other religions like Hinduism? I wish to wear it as I like it, not for religious reason
There is no prohibition to wear nose or toe rings. However, it will be prohibited if it has any significance in any other religion.
and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
So the answer says there's no prohibition but didn't talk much about its importance in Islam.
When searched more, I found a book named The Perfect Wife (Stridharmapaddhati) By Tryambakayajvan (A book on Hindu practices though) which claims Toe Rings were originally a muslim ornament (emphasis mine).
Altekar notes the conspicuous absence of the nose-ring in sculpture and painting throughout India before the Muslim invasions. He concludes that it was originally a Muslim ornament (1978:301 ff.; cf. PVK II.i.537).
Is there any kind of importance of Toe Rings in Islam?
