عن عمر بن الخطاب -رضي الله عنه- أَنَّ رَسُولَ الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- «نهى عن لُبُوسِ الحَرِيرِ إلا هكذا، ورَفَعَ لنا رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- أُصْبُعَيْهِ: السَّبَّابَةَ، والوُسْطَى». ولمسلم «نهى رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- عن لُبْس ِالحَرِيرِ إلا مَوْضِعَ أُصْبُعَيْنِ، أو ثلاثٍ، أو أربعٍ».
[صحيح.] - [متفق عليه.]

‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab, may Allah be pleased with him, reported: "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, forbade wearing silk except for this much, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, raised his two fingers to us: his index and middle finger." Muslim's narration reads: "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, forbade wearing silk except for the width of two, three or four fingers.”

Explanation

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him, forbade wearing silk for males, except for the amount he specified. According to the Hadith agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim, this amount is the width of two fingers. In the Hadith of Muslim it is the width of two, three or four fingers. So, the biggest width (four fingers) is to be considered. Thus, there is nothing wrong in wearing silk with the width of four fingers.
