Fatwaa ID: 650
Can one wear shorts if I was to wear a under garment that covers my knees and thighs, for example the thermals?
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
It is permissible to wear shorts with something underneath that covers the ‘awrah. However, it is important to remember that aside from covering, the clothing must also be loose, such that the precise body figure is not clear. Thermals may not always fulfill this condition. We advise you to get longer shorts.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
