Wiping of socks in ablution

1-They have to be thick (the skin can’t be seen through them, unlike nylons from women), 2-they should hold on the feet (you don’t tie them with a lace or a string), and 3-you should be able to walk wearing them without being hurt. A person has to wear them over his/her feet while in a state of ablution, and they have to cover the ankles (the two bones sticking out on the bottom of the leg). This means, you can not simply wear socks and then wipe over them. You should instead take a regular ablution (including washing the feet), then wear the sock. If later on in the day you lose the state of ablution, then, you may do a regular ablution but simply wipe over instead of wash the feet. Note: only the top of the sock (foot) should be wiped not the bottom where you walk on. This rule applies regardless if you are traveling or if you stay in the same town. As to the period of time, if you are traveling, you can keep them up to three days while if you are staying in the same town, you can do so only for a period of 24 hours after which you have to take them off to wash your feet again. This means, even if you intend to take them off in three hours and not to wear them for a whole day, you can still do the wiping off. There is no minimum time, but simply a maximum time.
