Hanafi Position on Wiping over Socks and Footgear


وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم, ما بعد

In Nur al-Idah we can find the conditions for wiping over socks in Hanafi fiqh:

With regards to the question of wiping over footgear like boots and shoes, this has been answered in the following fatawa: https://islamqa.org/hanafi/qibla-hanafi/42625 and https://islamqa.org/hanafi/qibla-hanafi/36346

To read the entire chapter (which I recommend), you can find Nur al-Idah in English (Khuffayn begin on page 86) here: http://data.nur.nu/Kutub/English/Nur-al-Idah-arabic-english_transl-Charkawi.pdf
