The length of a man's garment

Q 3: What is the Had (ordained punishment for violating Allah’s Law) for trailing the Izar (garment worn below the waist)? Also, what is the permissible length of an Izar?

A: It is Haram (prohibited) for men to lower and trail the Izar and anyone who does this and refuses to refrain from it should be punished. A Muslim's Izar extends to mid-calf, and can also reach above the ankle. However, it is Haram for a Muslim to lower the Izar beneath his ankles, otherwise he deserves punishment in the Hereafter and discretionary punishment in this world. This is in accordance with what is related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "What is below the ankles of a (man's) lower garment is in the Fire." There are other authentic Hadith to the same effect.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
