Permissibility of offering Salah while wearing shoes

Q 3: I see some people wearing their shoes during the Funeral Prayer, even though they are standing in front of Allah. What is the ruling on this?

A: It is permissible to offer Salah (Prayer) while wearing shoes, whether during an obligatory Salah, the Funeral Prayer or others, provided that they are not soiled with Najasah (ritual impurity). It was authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) offered Salah while wearing his shoes.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
