ISBAAL AND THE APPROVED OF THE LOWER GARMENT
By Dr. Saleh As-Saleh
Isbaal is to wear garments that extend below the ankles.
Is it Forbidden ?
Yes, because the Prophet (ﷺ) said; “The part of an Izaar (garment) which hangs below the ankles is in the Fire. Some hold the opinion that isbaal is forbidden when It was done out of pride, conceit or arrogance. Is this argument true?
No, ; First: The threat to punish in below the ankles is clear. “Hell those who drag their garments”.
Second: Several texts indicate that the Prophet (ﷺ) used to command the ‘people to pull up their garments. The majority of the Muslim Scholars (Al-Jumhoor) agree that when the text is in the imperative form, it is intended for Tahreem (forbidding something), unless there is another authentic evidence that indicates otherwise. In one incident, the Prophet (ﷺ) sighted someone dragging his lower garment. He (ﷺ) rushed to him and said: “Pull up your Izaar and fear.
In this book, Dr. Saleh As-Saleh spells out the Islamic injunctions on the length of the garment.
