Answered by: Maulana Syed Johir Miah




Is it permissible to wear a vest that is sleeveless and read salaah? If permissible, is it disliked?



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




It is reprehensible (Makrooh Tahreemi) to wear a half sleeve or sleeveless shirt ( Kurta or its like) and perform Salaah.


And if before salah due to some work a person rolls up his sleeves or for wudu or the style of the upper garment is such that it is sleeveless, then there is a difference of views in its Karahah (being disliked).[1]


It is Makrooh Tahreemi to perform Salaah with the sleeves folded.[2]


Wearing half sleeve qamis is not established from Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) Such qamis is contrary to Sunnah and to wear such qamis and pray is contrary to Sunnah.[3]



Only Allah knows best
