According to Sayyid Sistani:

56 السؤال:

هل يجب على المرأة ستر قدميها عن الاجنبي أم هما مستثنيان من وجوب الستر كالوجه والكفين؟

الفتوى:

يجب سترهما .

Q56 - Is it wajib upon the woman to cover her two feet in front of the ajnabi or are they exceptions from the obligation of covering like the face and hands?

A- It is wajib to cover them.

And in a follow up question the response is:

يجب على المرأة ستر القدمين عن غير المحارم .

It is wajib upon the woman to cover the two feet from the non-mahram.

Question to Ayatullah Sistani:

1) Is covering the females chin part of hijab? Or is that optional?

2) Does the females feet have to be covered?

Answers:

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

1- As for the part of the chin and the under chin that are seen when putting on the common head scarf, it is to be considered as part of the face

2- It is not permissible for a woman to expose the top part of her feet to a non-mahram onlooker. However, she is allowed to keep her feet —top as well as sole— exposed during salãt, if she is in a place where she is immune from the looks of a non-mahram person

From Ayatollah Khamenei's website, in the Frequently Asked Questions, in the Chapter called Prayer, the subsection called To Cover One’s Feet in Prayer (for Women):

Q: Is it necessary for women to cover their feet during the prayer?

A: At the presence of a non-maḥram, she should cover her entire feet. However, it is not necessary for her to cover them below the ankles if there is no non-maḥram.

From Ayatollah Khamenei's website, in the Practical Laws of Islam, in the Chapter called Prayer, in the subsection called Clothes of the Praying Person:

Q 433: How much of the body a woman should be covered in prayer? Is there any problem with short-sleeved clothes and in not wearing socks?

A: Women should cover the whole body except the area of the face washed during wuḍū’, the hands up to the wrists, and the feet up to the ankles provided that the dress should really cover the body. In the presence of a non-maḥram the feet should be covered as well.

Q 434: Is it obligatory for women to cover their feet during prayer?

A: Covering the feet up to the ankles is not obligatory as long as no non-maḥram is there.

Q 435: Is it obligatory to cover one’s chin completely when wearing ḥijāb and performing prayer or is it sufficient to cover the lower part of it? And is the obligation of veiling the chin a preliminary step for the obligatory face veil in shar‘?

A: It is obligatory to cover the lower part of the chin not the chin itself, because it is a part of the face.

Covering the body in prayers

797. A woman should cover her entire body while offering prayers, including her head and hair. As a recommended precaution, she should also cover the soles of her feet. It is not necessary for her to cover that part of her face, which is washed while performing Wudhu, or the hands up to the wrists, or the upper feet up to the ankles. Nevertheless, in order to ensure that she has covered the obligatory parts of her body adequately, she should also cover a part of the sides of her face as well as lower part of her wrists and the ankles.

Hijab - Covering the feet

QUESTION:

As regards to the covering of the body in hijab, how much of the body has to

be covered? Earlier I had learned that the face, wrists, and feet upto the

ankle could be left uncovered. Recently, however, I came to know that now

only the hands and face can show. I am now following Ayatulla Seestani.

Also, I was under the impression that the hijab for namaaz and that worn

outside have the same rulings. Ayatulla Sestani, in his resalah states that

in namaaz the feet do not have to be covered, but it is better to do so,

especially the underside of the foot. Can I then assume that the same

ruling applies for the hijab worn outside?

ANSWER:

The ruling for hijab outside includes covering the feet. As for the dress

for Ladies for namaaz, covering of the soles is recommended.

Asgharali M.M. Jaffer

Hijab - Unbearable to wear socks

QUESTION:

I would like to ask the following question regarding Ayat Seestani's

fatwa for covering the feet for women.

I follow Ayat Seestani's taqleed but I never used to cover the top of my

feet as i have never worn socks and find it too hot and unbearable to

wear socks. I did not know UNTIL recently that the upper part of feet to

cover is a must.

Can I follow the taqleed of another marjia for this particular issue i.e

who allows the feet to remain uncovered. If I am not mistaken Imam

Khomeini allowed it. But can i follow of a dead marjia. If not, is there

any other living marjia who allows this i.e if i am allowed to deviate

from this point.

ANSWER:

On this issue, you have to follow the ruling of Ayatullah Seestani.

I am not aware of any Marja who allows the baring of the feet in Hijab.

Salaams,

Hijab of Feet

Subject: Question [Hijab]

Assalamu alaikum

Please provide me with the ruling of Ayatollah Sistani and Ayatollah Javad

Tabrizi (if his rissaleh is available to you) for the following question:

Is it necessary that a woman cover the upper part of her feet, up to ankle

in front of a non-Mahram man? I know that this part is not required to be

covered in prayers, but I couldn't find whether it should be covered in

front of men, or not. What about the sole of the feet?

ANSWER:

Salaamun 'Alaykum;

Ayatullah Seestani states that a woman should conceal her body & hair from

non-mahram man. She is allowed to leave her hands and face upto the wrists

uncovered in the presence of na-mahram porvided it does notlead to lustful

glances. I trust this will answer the question as to what must be covered

and what can remain uncovered. I do not have the risala of Ayat Tabrizi.

2- It is not permissible for a woman to expose the top part of her feet to a non-mahram onlooker. However, she is allowed to keep her feet —top as well as sole— exposed during salãt, if she is in a place where she is immune from the looks of a non-mahram person

I don't think this is the accurate opinion of Ayt Sistani. Alseraj is a reliable website, however they have a note below the fatawa box saying that the responses don't always reflect the updated opinion of the Sayed-also most of time the responses come from different offices which sometimes differ from each other. As far as I know, Sayed allows only top part of feet to be exposed in salat, provided no non mahrams are present.

No, I try to pray bang on time and also when the guest knows someone is praying they prefer waiting outside but when there is a family gathering or he comes to visit us and I cannot get hold of my socks and wear in front of them..You see, there are times when if a woman is being too proper about her hijab, people find it rude...As in, I can do everything easily but the feet hijab seems like an non achievable goal!!!

Just put a pair of socks next to where you pray, and before starting prayer wear the socks, then after prayer you can take them off again.

Salam Alaikum It is good to hear this topic brought up some people muslims seem to look at me strange when I did not want to wear sandals in public.

I did not want to show my feet even though many people male and female were doing it. In a muslim country I visited. I wear boots that cover my feet completly.

I also cover my chin and I am a convert. I learned to do this by hearing the comments women's husbands would make about chins showing and women showing their feet. and then lator realized it was sunna of Prophet (A.S). But now it is normal for me.
