Ruling on selling spectacles, watches and vessels with gold plating

Question

What is the ruling on selling men’s watches and spectacles that are plated with real gold, and vessels for home use and medical equipment that is plated with gold, for men and women?.

Praise be to Allah.

If the matter is as described, it is not permissible to sell
vessels and medical equipment that is plated with gold or silver to either
men or women, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) said: “Do not drink from vessels of gold or silver, and do not eat
from plates made (of gold or silver). They are for them in this world and
for us in the Hereafter.” Saheeh – agreed upon. 

And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) said: “The one who eats from a vessel of silver is taking fire from
Hell into his belly.” Saheeh – agreed upon; this version was narrated by
Muslim. 

All other uses that have to do with food and drink are also
forbidden, because of the general meaning of these reports and so as to
prevent the means that may lead to evil. 

Similarly it is not
permissible for men to use watches and spectacles that are gold-plated. And
it is not permissible to sell such items to men. 

May Allaah help us and you to do all that is good.
