Wiping over the socks using other than the hands


Question:

The questioner says: What if a person uses a damp cloth to wipe over his Khuffs, is this sufficient?

Answer:

It’s sufficient; because he has applied water over the necessary area. Although, it’s better that he wipes over the socks directly using his hands, just as the Prophet ﷺ did. As for validity, then yes, it’s valid to do so.
