Fatwaa ID: 1361

Salam, after a few round of Tawaf, can I use a sandal/shoes ? I have a infection blister..I feel hurt on my bottom feet if I walking alot

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

May Allaah Ta’aala make it easy for you. It is permissible to wear sandals and slides during the tawaaf provided that you do not cover the ka’b. Shoes however will not be permissible as the ka’b will always be covered. The ka’b is the area in the middle of the foot where lace or belt is tied.

Kindly refer to the following fatwaa for details on what entails the ka’b.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
