Q 2: What is the ruling on
taking off shoes upon greeting anyone,
for some scholars see that this is permissible citing Allah's saying in Surah Ta-Ha:
So take off your shoes
Is this true?
(Part No. 3; Page No. 94)
It is not permissible to take off shoes upon greeting as far as texts of the Qur'an and Sunnah are concerned. Moreover, the ruling of taking off shoes in the law revealed to Musa (Moses, peace be upon him) was abrogated by the Shari`ah (Islamic law) revealed to Muhammad (peace be upon him), as all Muslims are allowed to offer Salah (prayer) in shoes.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
