Title: Do I need to perform masah on my leather socks after performing wudhu?


asalamu alykum when i do wudhu & wash my feet and wear leather socks and after that if i go for toilet and perform wudhu again within the day did i need to wash my feet again or simply perform masah


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, a muqeem (non-traveller) may perform masah on his leather socks up to a maximum of twenty-four hours.[1] The twenty-four hours are calculated from the first instance he broke his wudhu after wearing the leather socks.[2] In the enquired situation, it will suffice for you to make masah on the leather socks.



And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

(قوله: فإن كان مقيما مسح يوما وليلة، وإن كان مسافرا مسح ثلاثة أيام ولياليها)؛ لقوله صلى الله عليه وسلم «يمسح المقيم يوما وليلة والمسافر ثلاثة أيام ولياليها»

(قوله: ابتداؤها عقيب الحدث) يعني من وقت الحدث إلى مثله للمقيم يوما وليلة وإلى مثله في الثلاث للمسافر والرجل والمرأة فيه سواء.

"ويمسح المقيم يوما وليلة و" يمسح "المسافر ثلاثة أيام بلياليها" كما روى التوقيت عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم "وابتداء المدة" للمقيم والمسافر "من وقت الحدث" الحاصل "بعد لبس الخفين" على طهر هو الصحيح لأنه ابتداء منع الخف سراية الحدث وما قبله طهارة غسل وقيل من وقت اللبس وقيل من وقت المسح
