A man praying in transparent clothes

Q 6: Is it permissible for a man to pray while wearing semi-transparent clothes, like those popular among today's youth, with underpants underneath? Bear in mind that it is clear that the underpants are above the knees.

A: If the person praying is wearing a thick garment that does not describe the skin underneath it, it will be permissible to pray wearing it, even if the underpants are visible. However, if the fabric of the garment (Part No. 24; Page No. 17) is so fine that the colour of the skin of the `Awrah (parts of the body that must be covered in public) can be seen through, praying in such clothes will not be permissible.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
