Wiping over the Khuffs


Wiping over the “khuffs” is an act which is permitted and observing it is better than taking off the “khuffs” and washing the feet.


Duration of the validity of wiping over the khuffs without taking them off:-

  • For a resident:- 1 day & night= 24 hours
  • For a traveller:- 3 days &nights= 72 hours

For both the resident and traveller the period of permissibility (of wiping over the khuffs) starts from the time of being in a state of ritual impurity (caused by passing urine, stool or wind) after wearing the khuffs. Still some scholars view that the duration begins from the first ablution after being in a state of ritual impurity.


The conditions of wiping over the Khuffs, socks, and the like

  1. To be in a state of ritual purity upon wearing them
  2. The khuffs/socks must be lawfully acquired, gotten, and made.
  3. The khuffs/ socks must completely cover the feet up to the ankle.
