Someone told me that if you are travelling and you do wazu and put on socks it kind of locks up the wazu on your feet. And next time when you do wazu, you dont need to wash your feet but just do MASSAH over the socks. Is this true. And if it is, are there some special socks or any type of socks will be ok. Would really appreciate your response on this. Jazak Allah
