Inside of the leather socks becoming damp

Q: I used a leather Moza and it needed to be rinsed due to getting wet with dirty water. After rinsing it I removed it and found it to be damp on the inner side near the seems. I’ve read that Moza need to be water proof but I see the stitches don’t allow that.

  1. Can this Moza still be used as all leather moza have stitches?
  2. Do I have to repeat all the Salaah that were performed after making masa in the Moza?
  3. If Salaah needs to be repeated, what must I do about those who read Salaah behind me as I don’t know who some of them were?



  1. If the mozah does not have any holes and is secure from all sides, then you may continue using it.
  2. No

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
