Yes feet must be covered.
I don't get why this is a poll
It's not our opinion or something.
Unless your marja is Ayatollah Saanei.
We must be careful in our generalizations...
Though, I do agree, this is not a matter of opinion, and shouldn't be a poll.
"My Lord! My Lord! My Master! My Protector!
For which things would I complain to You and for which of them would I lament and weep? For the pain and severity of chastisement? Or for the length and period of tribulation? So if you subject me to the punishments with Your enemies, gather me with the people of Your tribulation and separate me from Your friends and saints, then suppose my Llah, my Master, my Protector and My Lord, that I am able to endure Your Chastisement,
How can I endure separation from you?
And suppose that I am able to endure the heat of Your Fire,
How can I endure not gazing upon Your Generosity? Or how can I dwell in the Fire while my hope is Your pardon?
So by Your Might, my Master and my Protector, I swear sincerely if You leave me with speech, I will lament before You from the midst of the Fire's inhabitants with the lamentation of the hopeful;
I will cry to You with the cry of those crying for help; I will weep before You with the weeping of the bereft; and I will call upon You,
'Where are You, O Sponsor of the belivers, O Goal of the hopes of Your knowers! O Aid of those who seek assistance, O friend of the hearts of the sincere, and O Allah of all the world's inhabitants!' "
