Are Feet Part of Awrah?

18 April, 2024
Q Is it permissible for women to wear sandal that exposes their feet? What do the scholars say about this? Is there a difference of opinion?


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

In this fatwa:

Some scholars consider the feet part of the awrah. Some other scholars say that the feet are not part of awrah at all. It is much better for a Muslim woman to cover her feet and that is the position of majority of scholars.
