Hadith on Ablution: Permission to wipe over non-leather socks and sandals

December 20, 2017

Al-Mughirah ibn Shu’bah reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, performed ablution by wiping over non-leather socks and sandals.

At-Tirmidhi said, “It is the view of more than one of the scholars, as is said by Sufyan Ath-Thawri, Ibn Al-Mubarak, Ash-Shafi’ee, Ahmad, and Ishaq. They said one may wipe over non-leather socks, even though they are not sandals, if they are thick.”

عَنْ الْمُغِيرَةِ بْنِ شُعْبَةَ قَالَ تَوَضَّأَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَمَسَحَ عَلَى الْجَوْرَبَيْنِ وَالنَّعْلَيْنِ

وقال الترمذي وَهُوَ قَوْلُ غَيْرِ وَاحِدٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ وَبِهِ يَقُولُ سُفْيَانُ الثَّوْرِيُّ وَابْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ وَالشَّافِعِيُّ وَأَحْمَدُ وَإِسْحَقُ قَالُوا يَمْسَحُ عَلَى الْجَوْرَبَيْنِ وَإِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ نَعْلَيْنِ إِذَا كَانَا ثَخِينَيْنِ

قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ
