Offering Salah (Prayer) while wearing

Q: Is it permissible to uncover one's shoulders while offering Salah (prayer)?

A: A Muslim is required by Shari`ah to cover his shoulders while praying. To this effect, the Prophet (peace be upon him) is authentically reported to have said: None of you should offer prayer in a single garment that does not cover the shoulders. (Recorded by both Al-Bukhari and Muslim.) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
