Q & A Wudu' and Purity

Q & A: “Wudu in boxer shorts…”

WUDU‘ IN BOXER SHORTS

Q. wudu in boxer shorts.

A.

Doing wudu’ with just boxer shorts on does not invalidate it (neither does being naked). However, Islamic dress requirements stipulate one must cover at least from his navel to his knees in the presence of others otherwise it will be a sin:

“(the `awra of a man is from under his navel to his knees) based on the saying of the Messenger of Allah: ‘the `awra of a man is from his navel to his knees’…”[1]

)…وعورة الرجل ما تحت السرة إلى الركبة) لقوله عليه الصلاة والسلام {عورة الرجل ما بين سرته إلى ركبته }

 And Allah knows best.
