Regular socks over wudhu friendly socks

Fatwaa ID: 1104

السلام عليكم

Respected Mufti Saab. Wanted to ask about wearing Seal Skins socks (Waterproof) after wudu. Due to cold weather, I wear another pair of normal socks over them. Could I do mas’ah over the second pair or would I need to do it directly on Seal skins?

جزاكم الله خيرا

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Wiping on regular socks that have been worn over wudhu friendly socks is not sufficient for the validity of wudhu. It is necessary to directly wipe the wudhu friendly socks.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
