Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1260 I am male. Can I wear shorts as part of my team kit whilst playing football for a team? Is it Makrooh if I wore shorts or Gunnah?
A man should be covered from above his navel to and including the Knees. This is in all walks of public and private life. Not to do so is a Grave Sin.

In football, as you have mentioned, to avoid exposing the parts that should be covered, men can wear under-layers that cover the knees. This should be done irrespective of the season as fulfilling the commands of Allah (S.W.T) over seeds our own ego.

Once you explain the reasoning to your team mates, you will Inshallah find them more understanding and you will not feel uncomfortable. Such thoughts are Waswasa from the
accursed Shaitaan. (Answered by: Hafiz Mohammed Akhtar)
