Ask an Alim

wear sneakers on ehram in umrah


I am traveling from Dammam to Jeddah to perform Umrah. Can I wear my snickers while traveling by air? I will be in the state of ihram while traveling. My snickers do not cover my ankles.


Assalamu alaykum

In the state of  Ihram men aren’t allowed to cover their upper part of the feet. And for women it should be covered since its part of thier Hijab

Best wishes,
