Keeping the lower garments above the ankles

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Am I correct in telling people that the sunnah dressing for men is that the outer garment (kurta and pants) is half-way between the ankles and the knee (on the shin) and that it is waajib for the outer garments to be above the ankles?


A: Rather than saying waajib, say that it is important.

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