The ruling on wiping over the socks if they are transparent or contain holes

Q: What is the ruling on wiping over socks that are transparent or have holes in them?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. It is permissible to wipe over them in Wudu’ (ablution) instead of washing the feet if they are put on while in a state of Taharah (ritual purity), unless the holes are bigger than is ordinarily acceptable, or the socks are so transparent that the feet are almost bare and reveal the color of skin beneath them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
