Hadith on the pants above the ankles.

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

slmz,moulana im a bit confused regarding the fatwa on the pants being above the ankles.some ulama r of the opinion that one has2wear it,whilst sum say,1mus not wear it cos of pride.authentic hadith pls.


It is narrated from Hadhrat Abu Zarr (Radhiallaahu Anhu) that Nabi
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Three groups of people Allah will not
talk to on the day of Qiyaamat nor will he look to them nor will he purify
them and for them is severe punishment’. Hadhrat Abu Dharr (Radhiallaahu
Anhu) says, ‘Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said this three times.

Hadhrat Abu Dharr (Radhiallaahu Anhu) said, ‘May they be losers. Who are
they O Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).’

Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘He who wears his pants below his
ankles. The one who talks of that good which he did for a person and that
person who sells his goods with false oaths.’ (Muslim)

In this Hadith, firstly, Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) speaks about
those people who wear their pants below their ankles out of pride. This is a
very grave sin. What could be worse than Allah Ta’ala not speaking to a
person, not even looking at him and dooming him to a painful punishment.

Furthermore, it is narrated from Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Umar (Radhiallaahu
Anhu). He says Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘That part below the
ankles which is covered by the pants will be in the fire of hell. Nowadays,
when you remind a person to raise his pants above his ankles. He says, ‘The
Hadith only mentions it in regards to those people who do it out of pride.
This is quite a widespread misconception which is dealt with in the
following Hadith:

Sayyiduna Jaabir ibn Saleem (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah
(Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Be careful with regards to dragging
your clothes (below the ankles), for verily it is from the acts of pride.’
(Sunan Abu Dawud)

Here, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) explains to us that the act
of letting the pants go below the ankles is in itself an act of pride. (See
Fathul Baari vol.10 pg.210)

And as for Salaat in this condition, Sayyiduna ibn Mas’ood (Radhiallaahu
Anhu) is reported to have said that such a person is out of the protection
of Allah Ta’ala. (Ibid)

May Allah Ta’ala save us all, Aameen

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
