Benefit: The Ruling on Wearing Pants That Fall below the Ankles - Shakyh Ibn Bāz
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
From the greatest scholars of the Ummah in the last century was al-ʿAllāmah al-Shakyh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn ʿAbdillāh ibn Bāz raḥimahullāh. His firmly-grounded knowledge of the religion, wisdom, and piety were characteristics that made him recognized by Muslims internationally. A collection of his rulings, al-Majmūʿ al-Fatāwá́, is an outstanding example of these aformentioned characeristics. The trend among people today, especially the youth, is to wear pants that fall below the ankles. Does our religion offer any guidance in this matter? Is there anything wrong with wearing pants like this? This question was posed to Shaykh Ibn Bāz and he answered with narrations from the Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam. Listen to this brief Q&A audio, presented by Mūsá Richardson, and remind your family and friends of the truth in this regard. May Allāh reward you.
