Do I get more reward for washing my feet in World War or wiping over my socks?

00:00:08--> 00:00:47

Another excellent question. The vast majority of scholars they prefer the washing of the feet during World War is the answer is the status quo is the basic principle is the idea in his most correct and authentic resuscitation. However, however, it is, of course, this shouldn't have to wipe over the socks as well or the hoofs. And here's an important distinction, every Hadeeth that focuses on the wiping 99% of them focus on the hope deliver thick socks and not the normal socks that we talk about, which is why some of the scholars are reticent to wipe up the socks in the first place. But let's just put that to the side, the only school that believes that it is actually more preferred to

00:00:47--> 00:01:19

wipe over the socks, as opposed to washing the feet is the humbly school. And the reason I say that is because it's a concession from along we should all love our last concessions. And they said because it's assumed that the process of them and the companions to do it. And they said that this is because the it is being different from the people have been. What I want to say to you is that effectively these are political reasons, because the sooner is definitely more to wash the feet. We know or we know that. And there's no doubt that the concession is good to use. We're not saying it's Haram. Okay. But the real issue is, is that there is an argument that yes, back at that time,

00:01:19--> 00:01:51

especially when he was formulating this opinion that people are bitter, who rejected the wiping, they are they're trying to get rid of a sweetener, which is so established, okay, something which is part of this Deen the wiping the socks and so to oppose them and to destroy their confidence and to make sure that we revive the sooner, it became really important for us to affirm the wiping. And so that's therefore we can say a political reason, I know a reason to change the offset, especially now where no one really cares or whatever. It could be argued that there are some places where they completely reject and refuse the wiping of the sock, and we should revive it. And I'm done with

00:01:51--> 00:02:22

that. I mean, I wipe over socks, I believe it's legitimate. I do want to emphasize that all of these scholars, when they're referring to the wiping, most of the time, they're talking to a much thicker, more safer concept of the earth. And the socks are reluctantly included because they are more thinner. And because they don't really represent what the hosts used to be, et cetera, et cetera. I've spoken about this before in other videos, but let's not get into that debate again. Now, it is permissible to wipe over the socks But personally, I think that the answer is or the one that should be focused on is washing as much as possible. That's the one that's more rewarded. But if there's a

00:02:22--> 00:02:55

scenario where you need to wipe even over your sock, your normal dress sock that you use today, absolutely, it's as soon as you do so no problem if you need to. Don't worry about that but better reward I think for washing the feet analyst Proctor knows best on with the majority.
