Can Salat Be Offered With Shoes On?

Answered by: Maulana Muhammad Asadullah Anwar Adam


Can salat be offered with shoes on?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Sa`id Abu Maslama narrated: I asked Anas (bin Malik), “Did the Prophet (ﷺ) use to offer the prayers with his shoes on?” He said, “Yes.” [1]

So it is allowed providing it fulfils two conditions:

1: The shoes must be clean.[2]

2: The feet must be connected to the ground, whether in shoes or otherwise because this is a fardh aspect of sajdah.[3]

Only Allah knows best
