Will masah on the khuf break if the zip opens a little?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If I have a on a khuf, and the zip opens up a little, say about 2cm, does my masah on the khuf break? The khuf is still on and hasn’t slipped off. What is the limit for the opening of the zip for the masah on the khuf to break?


A: If the area above the ankle is exposed, the masah will not break as the entire foot is still covered by the khuff. However, if the ankle or the area below the ankle gets exposed through opening the zip, the masah will break.

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