Wearing shorts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it haraam to wear shorts? Ahaadees say a man must cover himself from the navel to above the knees. If it’s true, then does it mean that we can wear shorts and offer prayers in it? Waiting for your answer.


A: Yes, it is obviously haraam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
