Q: My profession requires me to sew
I can lengthen them below or raise them above the ankles. Is there anything wrong with me if I sew the clothes below the ankles? Please enlighten me, and may Allah reward you!
You must sew in accordance with Shari`ah (Islamic law) in this regard. Consequently, you should not hem clothes below the ankles, even if you are asked to do so. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"That which hangs below the ankles is in the Fire."
In addition, it is not permissible for a Muslim to help others in doing prohibited acts.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
