Criteria of khuffs


What is the minimum criteria for something to be considered khuffs? Wudhu socks are being marketed nowadays, however they are not made of leather. Many people also seem to just wipe over normal socks saying khuffs can be any socks


As-Salamu ‘Alaikum,

There are differing opinions among scholars regarding the validity of wiping over non-leather socks or foot coverings. Some scholars allow wiping over any type of socks, including those made of non-leather materials, while others adhere strictly to the requirement of leather. This difference of opinion arises from different interpretations of the original sources of Islamic law.
