Answered by: Maulana Tahsin Alam
Can you please share some pictures of the type of footwear that is acceptable for Hajj based on Hanafi Madhab?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
In the Ḥanafi madhab, the ankles and the bones of the tarsals (i.e. the bone of the upper part of the foot) must be left uncovered. Flip-flop sandals meet this requirement, such as the one below.
Only Allah knows best
