Prayer (Salat) in t-shirts or half arm shirts.

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Jamia Binoria

Aslam o alekum!
I want to ask question about t-shirts or half arm shirts. In summer we wear such shirts because of heat and sometimes for self-pleasure (shauq ki khatir) and comfort.
Is namaz valid if offered wearing t-shirts or half arm shirst where you elbow remains naked?
and If we are wearing full arm shirt and fold it but elbow does not get naked, is namaz offered valid in both ways?
Or we need to re offer our namaz.

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

It is detestable and undesirable from the Shar’i point of view to do so purposely in Salath without a valid excuse. While it is necessary to refrain from such acts, arrangements should be made to wear long sleeved garments in future. However in both the above situations Salath will be valid detestably and repetition too is not necessary.
Allah knows best.
Muhammad Za’eem
