Covering ankles in Salaah


Is there any sahih hadith regarding the coveing of ankles for women in salaah ?


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question.

Ayatullah Sistani has the following on his site:
“Women have to cover their entire body including hair, but excluding the face, hands – to the wrists, and feet – to the ankles during prayer. They should do this even when they are alone”

Kindly refer to the following link for a further read:

Also, some things in islam are explained through jurisprudence and fatawas from Marjas. Hence I though of getting the details directly from there.
