[Q 251] Ruling regarding trousers length in salah


Whats the lowest it can go for being permissible for prayer. Above the ankle bone. Midway through ankle bone
Or just below the ankle bone?

What is the ruling on how low it can go?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


The Sunnah method is to keep the length of the trouser above the ankle.
If it is below the ankle, it will be contrary to the Sunnah and the prayer will be Makruh Tanzihi (slightly disliked).

However if one keeps it the below the ankles due to Takabbur (arrogance), then it is haram and in this case prayer will be makrooh e Tahreemi (needs to be repeated).
