1. Is it necessary to fold the pants above the ankle during salaat.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

It is prohibited to wear pants below the ankle at all times. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ?Allah will not look at a person with mercy who lowers his pants below his ankle.? (Bukhari)

To perform Salaat with the pants below the ankles is Makrooh. Therefore, the pants should be folded above the ankles at all times, in particular, during Salaat.
