Performing Salaah In Clothing Without Sleeves


What is the ruling on performing Salaah without sleeves, is it permissible, makrooh, being disrespectful, haraam or allowed?


Wearing a sleeveless or short sleeved garment and performing Salaah is a practice that is in contrast to the Sunnah and should therefore be avoided. If the sleeveless garment is such that wearing it in front of reputable people is regarded as unethical, then presenting oneself before Allah whilst performing Salaah in such a garment will be Makrooh (detested).
