Details of the Question
Is it permissible for a man and women to pray without socks? Could anybody perform prayers barefoot?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Private parts are the organs which are fard (mandatory to be done) to be covered and haram to be shown to other people.

‘Private parts’ are the whole body of women except hands and face. For men, ‘private parts’ are the parts between the kneecap and the navel.

For this reason, according to some scholars, the praying of a woman barefoot is considered makrooh (abominable) but their prayers are still valid.

There is no drawback for a man’s performing a prayer  and leading the prayers as an Imam barefoot.
