As salam alaikum, I had a question regarding prayer. Are women required to have their feet covered during prayer?
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
Of the four schools of Islamic law, three have the view that a woman’s feet should be covered during the prayer. The exception is the Hanafi school, where it is believed that the feet do not have to be covered during the prayer because they do not consider it part of her ʿawra.
And God knows best.
