Is it permissible to wipe over the Khuffs (leather socks) without an excuse,
whether cold weather or illness, but just for being unable to take them off?
It is permissible to wipe over the Khuffs if they cover the feet (Part No. 4; Page No. 100) and the ankles, and you wear them after performing Wudu' (ablution), even if it is not cold. The wiping period is a day and a night for a resident, and three days and nights for a traveling person. And Allah knows best.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
