Respected Mufti Sahib, What kind/shape of shoes/sandals are allowed to be worn when one is wearing Ihram? If the weather is cold can any body wear socks and if yes then what should be its shape/type?
In the state of Ihraam, the area from the ankles as well as the area from
the bone in the centre of both the feet must be left uncovered. It is not
permissible to wear socks in the state of Ihraam as it is prohibited to wear
anything sewn in that state.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
