Zip Of A Khuff Opening Up


If I have a on a khuf, and the zip opens up a little, say about 2cm , does my khuf break. The khuf is still on and hasn’t slipped off.

What is the limit for the opening of the zip for the khuf to break.


Firstly, one is only allowed to make Masah on such leather socks which cover and conceal one’s feet including his ankles. Masah is not valid over a Khuff in which there is a tear through which the extent of three toes are exposed. However, if the tear is less than that, it will be valid to make Masah on such socks.

In the enquired case, if your ankles get exposed, it will nullify your Masah. If not, your Masah will remain intact.
