    Title: masah on socks

    Question: I have done my wudhu without removing my socks and I made masah on the socks. Because the place I done my wudhu is not tidy I wore leather shoes. And I made wudhu in the morning while going out. Please let me know my wudhu and prayer will be accepted or not?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 337/337/M=1433) Masah is valid either on leather socks or socks which fulfil the conditions that make the masah on socks lawful, i.e. the sock is so thick that it does not split by walking three miles and sticks to the feet without fastening. Masah is not lawful on the prevalent cotton or nylon socks. If you did masah on cotton or nylon socks then masah was not correct and salah offered with that wudhu was not valid. You should reoffer those salahs again which you offered with that wudhu.
