Below is a response from

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

I refer to your query of even date.

I spent a considerable amount of time in personally examining Sealskinz Socks to ensure that the socks represent the criteria set down by our Illustrious Fuqha for the validity of making masah on leather socks.

My fatwa is only on the sealskinz product distributed by MIS Distributors. I did not see the Reef socks or imitation product of the sealskinz from China.

I confirm having reviewed my previous fatwa on sealskinz and still maintain the same view.

Attached in my previous fatwa.

Q) What is your view regarding making Masah on Sealskinz socks. Do they fulfil the sharii requirement of masah?


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

In order for it to be permissible to wipe on non-leather socks, it is imperative to fulfil all the conditions of leather socks.  After thoroughly studying the inherent qualities of leather socks, our illustrious Fuqaha suggest that non-leather socks should resemble leather socks in the following:

1.      They should entirely cover both the ankles.

2.      They should be durable enough that a person can walk with the sock for three miles without them tearing.

3.      Both socks should independently be free from holes to the extent of three small toes.

4.      The socks should remain on the leg without it being tied or fastened.

5.      They should be such that water does not seep through them.

(كتاب الحجة علي أهل المدينة – (ج 1 / ص 44 عالم الكتب)ينبغي لمن قاس علي السنة و الآثار أن يقيس علي السنة ما لم يأت فيه أثر لما قد جاءت فيه الآثار مما يشبهه

 (بداية المجتهد- (ج 1 / ص 52 دار الاسلام)  و من صح عنده الأثر أو جوز القياس علي الخف أجاز المسح علي الجوربين

 شرح فتح القدير – (ج 1 / ص 157 دار الفكر)لا شك أن المسح على الخف على خلاف القياس فلا يصلح إلحاق غيره به إلا إذا كان بطريق الدلالة وهو أن يكون في معناه ومعناه الساتر لمحل الفرض الذي هو بصدد متابعة المشي فيه في السفر وغيره للقطع بأن تعليق المسح بالخف ليس لصورته الخاصة بل لمعناه للزوم الحرج في النزع المتكرر في أوقات الصلاة خصوصا مع آداب السير
