Adab on Wearing Shoes

manner wearing shoes

One of the manners of using shoes is not using only one shoe or footwear. Use both or take both of them.

In a hadith from Abu Hurairah (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) says:

لا يمش أحدكم في نعل واحدة، لِيُنْعِلهما جميعًا، أو لِيَخْلَعْهُمَا جميعًا

“None of you should walk wearing one shoe; you should either wear them both or take them off both” [al-Bukhari and Muslim].

In this hadith, the Prophet (ﷺ) prohibits us from walking with one shoe and tells that we should either wear both shoes or take them both off and walk barefooted. Because using only one shoe can endanger the wearer and make his appearance less good.

This manner also shows the precision of the Islamic Shariah and the fact that it encompasses all aspects of life.

    Respect Sir/Madam

    Please do not show images of Shoes next to Hadis. Hadis are the words of our beloved prophet Mohammed saws.

    This is an insult to our beloved prophet Mohammed saws. It may not be your intention to dishonor him intentionally, this might have happened unknowingly.

    But, Please take out this image, rectify your mistake and kindly apologize to everyone, that this was done unintentionally and it was an honest mistake.
