Is It Problematic to Have Holes in My Clothing for Prayer?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaykum,

Is there a size limit in holes of clothes that we pray in?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

Covering the nakedness is a condition for the validity of the prayer.

Thereafter, it is problematic to have holes in your clothing from which the nakedness underneath can be seen from a normal distance.
