Can I do masah on Sealskinz socks after repairing them?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

1) In the hanafi school of thought if we sew the holes with normal thread, in the sealskinz masah socks (originally 2 holes did not amount to the size of 3 small toes). Will masah on them still be valid.


2) If yes to Q1, then can we continue to do masah over these socks after repairing any holes that appear again and again?




In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh


It is permissible for one to make Masah on the sealskinz socks after repairing them as long as they fulfil the conditions for a leather sock (Mozah).



And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
