# Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera – Q&A Time Frame for Wiping Masah on Socks

The speaker explains that the best way to understand how socks work is to understand their function in terms of the shape of the feet. They explain that the socks act as a barrier and prevent impurities from breaking into the feet. The function of the socks is to prevent impure feet from breaking into the rest of the body.
00:00:00 --> 00:00:01

Is there

00:00:02 --> 00:00:05

a timeframe between doing Waldo and putting on muscle socks?

00:00:05 --> 00:00:08

Previously? I prayed Salaat then remembered I wanted to wear the

00:00:08 --> 00:00:12

socks or put them on. Is that okay? Good question. So, so to

00:00:12 --> 00:00:16

understand this question, the best thing to do first is to understand

00:00:16 --> 00:00:20

how my socks work, what's their function in terms of the deal in

00:00:20 --> 00:00:24

terms of the jurisprudence of it, what is their function, their

00:00:24 --> 00:00:29

function is that they act as a barrier, they act as a barrier for

00:00:29 --> 00:00:32

the impurity to reach the feet. When I say impurity, I'm talking

00:00:32 --> 00:00:35

about the state of impurity when a person breaks, they will do

00:00:35 --> 00:00:39

nullifies they will do, their whole body becomes impure, not

00:00:39 --> 00:00:42

physically, there's no physical impurity necessarily on the body,

00:00:42 --> 00:00:45

just a state that you can't pray will do with that state. So

00:00:45 --> 00:00:49

essentially, what what the socks do the leather socks or the wudu

00:00:49 --> 00:00:53

socks do is they prevent that impurity from going on to the

00:00:53 --> 00:00:56

feet. So this tells us a number of things, number one,

00:00:59 --> 00:01:02

for if they're going to stop the purity from going to the feet, it

00:01:02 --> 00:01:06

means that your feet can't be impure, you can't be impure before

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

you start, which means that if you're not on wudu, there's no

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

point putting them on, because it's not going to prevent

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

00:01:13 --> 00:01:18

feet as is in the rest of your body as well. Right? So now since

00:01:18 --> 00:01:22

it's a barrier, that means it's going to start working from when

00:01:22 --> 00:01:26

you have an impurity. So in your question, when you're asking that,

00:01:26 --> 00:01:30

if I put it on after doing we'll do an after my prayer, that would

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

be completely fine. As long as you haven't broken you will do. So

00:01:33 --> 00:01:37

essentially, they can be worn at any time that you're on will do.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:40

And that will do could have happened just before it or maybe

00:01:40 --> 00:01:43

an hour before it even 10 hours before it if you can keep your

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

will do for that long idea is that you're in full purity before you

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

put them on. So then they act as a barrier. Because if you're already

00:01:49 --> 00:01:53

employed anyone works. So if you do, then you make solid, then you

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

put it on and you're still on Hulu, then that's completely fine.

00:01:55 --> 00:02:00

You're you can do that. The time of the 24 hours or 72 hours if

00:02:00 --> 00:02:04

you're a traveler starts from when not from when you put it on, but

00:02:04 --> 00:02:07

from when you actually break your will do because that's when it

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

starts functioning. Because remember its function is to

00:02:09 --> 00:02:13

prevent the impurity from alighting on to the feet. That's

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

why you just do masa and the impurity gets lifted. So hopefully

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

that's very clear.
