Etiquette of wearing shoes, socks

Abu Huraira (RA) quoting the Holy Prophet (SAW) said: “If one of you puts on shoes, let him begin with the right. And when he takes them off let him begin with the left. And let him take them both off or leave them both on.” Al Bukhari Book 2, Volume 72, Hadith 747.

Abu Huraira (RA) further reported,  “None of you should walk, wearing one shoe only; he should either put on both shoes or put on no shoes whatsoever.” Al Bukhari. Book 7, Volume 72, Hadith 746. However, Hazrat Ayesha (RA) has narrated that the Prophet (SAW) walked a few steps while wearing a shoe in his one foot to open the door of the Hujra (sacred chamber). Al Tirmidhi.
According to ulema this was either to grant permission or he just walked one or two steps. The most revered Prophet (SAW) has also advised the Muslims to put on the shoe while sitting.  This has been reported by Jabir Ibn Abdullah (RA) that the Prophet (SAW)  denied that the person puts on his or her shoes while standing (Abu Dawood).
Ulema, however, believe that there is no direction in the hadith. According to them, it is only an advice and holds good for shoes with laces. They see no harm in wearing the shoe while standing if it is comfortable. This ruling is regarding those shoes, which take time to wear whilst standing (and) those which need the straps to be tied. In the same way the boots (this refers to the present day shoes) should also be worn whilst sitting, because even in these shoes, the laces have to be tied, and to tie them whilst standing is difficult.
The holy Prophet (SAW) has said, “If the laces of your shoes break, you should not walk whilst only wearing one shoe, but you should repair the lace.” He also advised against walking while wearing only one sock. (Al Muslim). The rules for wearing the socks are same. It must be worn on the right foot first and then on the left.
The socks constitute an important component of a woman’s dress.  Dr Fu`ad Mukhaymar, professor of Islamic studies at Al-Azhar University says it is preferable that a woman prays while wearing socks that cover her ankles along with her feet. However, if a woman is sure that no non-Mahram (marriageable man) will enter the place where she prays, then there will be no wrong in praying without wearing socks. In this case also, there will be no wrong in praying while her feet remain uncovered.
On the other hand, if she is in doubt that a non-Mahram may enter the place where she prays, then she is required to wear the socks to cover her ankles.

    ld be reduced, but we wanted to use integrated seat tubes on some of our designs and wanted to leave some room for that. Why is the rear axle fixed and positioned like it is Making the bottom bracket fixed would have required space for adjustment at both ends of the jig. Fixing the rear axle saves space. In addition, attaching the profile holding the rear axle flush with the supporting (horizontal) profiles situates the centre line of the frame n.

    but this is a refreshingly chaste film. Everyone is far too noble in pursuit of higher goals to keep the lights on during lovemaking. Damsels in Distress is a love it or hate it movie. Personally, I think the ones who aren’t charmed to pieces by its endless banter and preposterous characters very much need our help to expand their tastes and accept a more enlightened purview of what, indeed, is refined and acceptable motion picture entertainment..

    y of research on the internet and printed off all typed of things for my case, with paper, ink and my time, there is many costs. Toss mental anguish in there and I would settle out of court for several million dollars. I will take it in cash, or holdings. This immoral company, LVNV funding will ruin my credit forever since the debt will keep showing up unless I can afford to build up some type of lawsuit against them. Informational sources within.
