How does one make masah on leather socks during wudhu?

Answer

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

It is fardh to make masah equal to the area of three fingers on each leather sock. The preferable method of making masah is that it should be made with the palm-side of the hands and on the top of the leather sock. Once the fingers are wet, place them flat on the socks with the palms away from them, thereafter pull the fingers towards the ankles.

وَأَمَّا مِقْدَارُ الْمَسْحِ ، فَالْمِقْدَارُ الْمَفْرُوضُ هُوَ مِقْدَارُ ثَلَاثِ أَصَابِعَ طُولًا ، وَعَرْضًا ، مَمْدُودًا ، أَوْ مَوْضُوعًا

أَنْ يَمْسَحَ عَلَى ظَاهِرِ الْخُفِّ ، حَتَّى لَوْ مَسَحَ عَلَى بَاطِنِهِ لَا يَجُوزُ ، وَهُوَ قَوْلُ عُمَرَ ، وَعَلِيٍّ ، وَأَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ ، وَهُوَ ظَاهِرُ مَذْهَبِ الشَّافِعِيِّ ، وَعَنْهُ أَنَّهُ لَوْ اقْتَصَرَ عَلَى الْبَاطِنِ لَا يَجُوزُ ، وَالْمُسْتَحَبُّ عِنْدَنَا الْجَمْعُ بَيْنَ الظَّاهِرِ ، وَالْبَاطِنِ فِي الْمَسْحِ ، إلَّا إذَا كَانَ عَلَى بَاطِنِهِ نَجَاسَةٌ .
