To offer Salah in footwear while


Q: What is the ruling on entering Masjids (mosques) while wearing shoes especially for soldiers whose work requires them to wear shoes all the time? Moreover, Masjids are furnished with carpets.


A: It is permissible to enter Masjids and perform Salah while wearing shoes provided that the shoes are pure. One should also pay great attention to the cleanliness of his shoes in order not to contaminate the Masjid. (Part No. 6; Page No. 216) May Allah grant us success.
