Ablution is a problem for working women. Is it sufficient to wipe over thin socks while taking ablution, like wiping over the top of the feet without a complete wash of the feet?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Among the conditions of the validity of wiping over socks, the following conditions are present: the socks must be solid enough to stand without laces; they must not letting water in and must be durable enough for a normal course of walk of 5 kms. It is acceptable to wipe over socks which comply with these conditions. Those which do not have such qualifications cannot be wiped over.

Besides, if the socks worn over leather-made socks are thin enough to let the water over the leather-made socks when wiped while making ablution, they are acceptable to be wiped over. It is not permissible to wipe  if the socks worn over leather-made socks do not let the wetness under.
