Can I perform prayers with my work clothes?

The Details of the Question

- I work in industry. Can I perform prayers with my work clothes?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is obligatory for the place where we pray, our clothes and our body to be clean of impurity (the dirt that hinders prayer).

The presence of paint, oil, dust and mud on the work clothes with which we pray, which our religion does not consider impure, does not prevent prayer. There is nothing wrong with performing prayers in such work clothes. In fact, we hope that you will receive more rewards for performing prayers on time despite working under difficult conditions.

However, it is the advice of our religion to wear clean clothes when we go to the mosque.
