Question

 

Can salat be offered with shoes on?

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

Sa`id Abu Maslama narrated: I asked Anas (bin Malik), “Did the Prophet (ﷺ) use to offer the prayers with his shoes on?” He said, “Yes.” [1]

 

So it is allowed providing it fulfils two conditions:

 

1: The shoes must be clean.[2]

2: The feet must be connected to the ground, whether in shoes or otherwise because this is a fardh aspect of sajdah.[3]
