As salaamu alaikum Mufti,
Please advise regarding the sms that is doing the rounds with regards to women covering their feet during salaah – with socks and not see through stockings. The message says that 3 out of the 4 imams have insisted that women cover their feet completely when performing salaah and that only Imam Abu Hanifa has differed in that he prescribed for women to cover only the top half of their feet during salaah. Meaning it is only permissible to leave the soles uncovered. Is this true? Shukran.
