Going to the Musjid after playing sports

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I came to know that wearing half sleeves shirt while performing Salaah is Maqrooh. I want ask that I go for squash daily from asr to maghrib so I wear half sleeves so I can play and it is very difficult to first pray in full sleeves than go back home and prepare for Squash. I also want to know that as squash makes you sweat, so can I pray in sweaty shirts as well as half sleeves?


A: To enter into the musjid etc. with an unpleasant smell is incorrect. You should wash yourself or at least the sweaty areas. And namaaz with short sleeves is also makrooh.

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