Benefit: Men Praying with Garments below Their Ankles

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-‘Uthaymīn (رحمه الله) was asked: “Does wearing a thawb (garment) that passes the ankles nullify the ṣalāh?”

He (رحمه الله) responded:

Whoever wears a thawb that passes his ankles has committed a major sin, since the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whatever is below the ankles is in the Fire.” (Reported by Imām Aḥmad with this wording.)

[As for the validity of the ṣalāh,] then the scholars differ over that. Some say even though the ṣalāh is valid, a man is sinful for wearing a thawb that passes his ankles. Others say his ṣalāh is invalid, since he wore a thawb that is ḥarām to wear. What is correct is that even though his ṣalāh is valid, he is sinful for wearing a thawb that passes his ankles.
