    Re: Did the Prophet remove his shoes when he entered a home?

    I'm not sure how relevant this is, but I have highlighted the important part. It seems to suggest that Rasoolullah salAllahu alayhe wasalaam wore his shoes inside the home, on this occasion at least. But, Allahu alim, of course.

    Muhammad b. Qais said (to the people): Should I not narrate to you (a hadith of the Holy Prophet) on my authority and on the authority of my mother? We thought that he meant the mother who had given him birth. He (Muhammad b. Qais) then reported that it was 'A'isha who had narrated this: Should I not narrate to you about myself and about the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him)? We said: Yes. She said: When it was my turn for Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) to spend the night with me, he turned his side, put on his mantle and took off his shoes and placed them near his feet, and spread the corner of his shawl on his bed and then lay down till he thought that I had gone to sleep. He took hold of his mantle slowly and put on the shoes slowly, and opened the door and went out and then closed it lightly. I covered my head, put on my veil and tightened my waist wrapper, and then went out following his steps till he reached Baqi'. He stood there and he stood for a long time. He then lifted his hands three times, and then returned and I also returned. He hastened his steps and I also hastened my steps. He ran and I too ran. He came (to the house) and I also came (to the house). I, however, preceded him and I entered (the house), and as I lay down in the bed, he (the Holy Prophet) entered the (house), and said: Why is it, O 'A'isha, that you are out of breath? I said: There is nothing. He said: Tell me or the Subtle and the Aware would inform me. I said: Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be ransom for you, and then I told him (the whole story). He said: Was it the darkness (of your shadow) that I saw in front of me? I said: Yes. He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you? She said: Whatsoever the people conceal, Allah will know it. He said: Gabriel came to me when you saw me. He called me and he concealed it from you. I responded to his call, but I too concealed it from you (for he did not come to you), as you were not fully dressed. I thought that you had gone to sleep, and I did not like to awaken you, fearing that you may be frightened. He (Gabriel) said: Your Lord has commanded you to go to the inhabitants of Baqi' (to those lying in the graves) and beg pardon for them. I said: Messenger of Allah, how should I pray for them (How should I beg forgiveness for them)? He said: Say, Peace be upon the inhabitants of this city (graveyard) from among the Believers and the Muslims, and may Allah have mercy on those who have gone ahead of us, and those who come later on, and we shall, God willing, join you. (Muslim Book 4, 2127)

                Sahih Bukhari
                Volume:8 Book :74 (Asking Permission)Number :297

                Narrated Sahl bin Sad:

                There was no name dearer to 'Ali than his nickname Abu Turab (the father of dust). He used to feel happy whenever he was called by this name. Once Allah's Apostle came to the house of Fatima but did not find 'Ali in the house. So he asked "Where is your cousin?" She replied, "There was something (a quarrel) between me and him whereupon he got angry with me and went out without having a midday nap in my house." Allah's Apostle asked a person to look for him. That person came, and said, "O Allah's Apostle! He (Ali) is sleeping in the mosque." So Allah's Apostle went there and found him lying. His upper body cover had fallen off to one side of his body, and so he was covered with dust. Allah's Apostle started cleaning the dust from him, saying, "Get up, O Abu Turab! Get up, Abu Turab!"

                  Re: Did the Prophet remove his shoes when he entered a home?

                  Abu Dawood narrated in his Sunan with his isnaad that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri said: Whilst the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was leading his companions in prayer, he took off his shoes and placed them to his left. When the people saw that, they took off their shoes. When the Messenger of Allaah had finished the prayer he said, “What made you take off your shoes?” They said, “We saw you take off your shoes, so we took off our shoes.” The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Jibreel (peace be upon him) came to me and told me that there was some dirt on them.” And he said: “When one of you comes to the mosque, let him check his shoes, and if he seeds any dirt on them, let him wipe them and pray in them.”


                  Taking off shoes when entering the house is not sunnah and keeping them is not sunnah too! So, it's up to you. However, common sense tells you to take them off for hygiene. And also cleaness is recommended in Islam.

                  Btw, it is not allowed to wear one shoe only. Either wear both of them or take off both.

                  Also, in grave yards, shoes should be taken off unless it is difficult to do so. The proohet SAAW has asked someone to take off his shoes.

                    Re: Did the Prophet remove his shoes when he entered a home?

                    It's an odd and interesting question.

                    In the time of the Prophet (saw), dirt streets and dirt roads likely absorbed a lot of the truly nasty filth.

                    Nowadays in urban settings, with asphalt and concrete everywhere, a lot of really vile disgusting things just stay there.

                    When visiting Paris, for example, I can't count the number of times I've slipped in dog poo, nearly killing myself. In France, only crazy Muslims would wear their shoes inside a mosque.

                    (I've stepped on dead rats when in New York. This has happened only twice in maybe twenty years. But. Still. New York sidewalks? In major American cities, I think only crazy Muslims would wear their shoes inside a mosque.)

                      Well, at my Mosque, people wear shoes inside Mosque (like the classrooms and stuff), but nobody wears shoes in the prayer room. Either bare or socked (or leather socked)
                      Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up do we realize something was actually strange.

                        Re: Did the Prophet remove his shoes when he entered a home?

                        Question:
                        Is it true that Imaam Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab said that walking with shoes in the mosque is something which is allowed in Islam, and that visiting graves is haraam? Please advise us, may Allaah reward you with good.

                        Answer:

                        Praise be to Allaah.

                        Where did you get this from? We tell you that this is a big lie.

                        Imaam Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab (may Allaah have mercy on him) was a man of knowledge, a scholar. He did not say these things. What he urged people to do, as is written in his books, is to turn to Allaah when they pray, and to be focused in their prayer, in obedience to the words of Allaah (interpretation of the meaning):

                        “Successful indeed are the believers.

                        Those who offer their Salaah (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness” [al-Mu’minoon 23:1-2]

                        - because the person who is praying must acknowledge the greatness of the One before Whom he is standing. So he should not move too much, as it says in the report: “If the heart is focused then the limbs will be still.” Some scholars attributed this to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), but al-Haafiz ibn Rajab al-Hanbali said: The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not say this, and there is no saheeh isnaad reporting that he said, “If the heart is focused then the limbs will be still”- even though the meaning is sound. This is the saying of one of the salaf. And this is what Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab said.

                        With regard to walking with shoes in the mosque and his saying that this is allowed in Islam, this is not correct. Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab did not say that walking with shoes in the mosque is something which is allowed in Islam. He said the same as was narrated in the ahaadeeth, which is that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When any one of you comes to the mosque, let him look at his shoes, and if he sees anything dirty on them, let him wipe them, because they may be purified by rubbing them with dust.” This refers to shoes and to the mosque at that time [which was simple and unfurnished]. However, if the mosque is furnished [with carpets and the like], we should keep it clean from shoes and not enter wearing shoes, lest we make the place dirty by bringing in something unclean on our shoes. This was indicated by some of the scholars and is part of what Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab said. He did not say that it is allowed in Islam to enter the mosque with shoes.

                        With regard to it being haraam to visit graves, he did not say this at all. Imaam Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab followed the ahaadeeth, and the hadeeth says: “”I used to forbid you to visit graves, but now [you should] visit them, for they are a reminder of the Hereafter.” (Narrated by Muslim, no. 977). And he (may Allaah have mercy on him) said to those who visit graves that when they visit them, they must abide by the etiquette of Islam and make du’aa’ as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught his companions: when you enter the graveyard, say: “Peace be upon you, dwellers of these abodes, believers and Muslims. We will, whenever Allaah wills, join you. May Allaah have mercy on those of you who were first (to die) and those who were last. I beg of Allaah salvation for us and for you. O Allaah, deprive us not of reward (similar to theirs) and lead us not astray after they are gone, and forgive us and them.” (Saheeh Muslim, no. 974, 975)

                        This is what the ahaadeeth say, and Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab affirmed this in his books. But what he said was: People should not travel specifically to visit graves. This is the view of Ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab, in accordance with the hadeeth of Abu Sa’eed in al-Saheehayn, where it says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

                        “Journeys should not be undertaken to visit (any place) except three: al-Masjid al-Haraam [in Makkah], this mosque of mine [in Madeenah] and al-Masjid al-Aqsaa [in al-Quds/Jerusalem].” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2/50;Muslim, 827; al-Nasaa’i, 1/277-287). He said: This hadeeth indicates that it is not permissible to travel specifically to visit graves, but if you visit them in your own city, for example, or those that do not require travel specifically to visit them, then this is OK. The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to visit graves, such as the graveyard of al-Baqee’, and he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) visited the graves of the shuhadaa’ (martyrs) and made du’aa’ for them. This is something which is well known. What is forbidden is travelling specifically to visit graves. This is something which we should not do, according to the hadeeth of Abu Sa’eed. Hence al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad al-Maaliki said: It is not permissible to travel specifically to visit graves. This was also the view of Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali, Ibn ‘Aqeel, Ibn Battah and a group of scholars. All that was said to you is not correct, as we have explained to you. And Allaah knows best.

                          Here is somhing more specific related to praying in shoes - sorry brother Abumubarak can't find anything on ur question specifically

                          Question:
                          Is it permissible to pray wearing shoes when necessary, or not?

                          Answer:

                          Praise be to Allaah.

                          Yes, that is permissible, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) prayed wearing his shoes. In al-Saheeh it is narrated that Abu Sa’eed said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) lead us in prayer whilst he was wearing his shoes, then he took them off [whilst still praying], and the people took their shoes off too. When the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said the Tasleem [at the end of the prayer], they said: “O Messenger of Allaah, you took off your shoes, so we took off our shoes too.” He said: “Jibreel came to me and told me that there was some dirt on them, so I took them off. When any one of you comes to the mosque, let him look at his shoes, and if he sees any dirt on them, let him wipe them. And they can be purified with dust.”

                          (Narrated by Abu Dawood, no. 650). The point here is that praying in shoes is permissible. It says in the hadeeth: “Be different from the Jews, pray wearing your slippers or shoes.” (Narrated by Abu Dawood, no. 652). But the condition is that the shoes must be taahir (pure, clean). If there is any najaasah (impurity) or dirt on the shoes, then one should not pray wearing them or enter the mosque in shoes, unless he is sure that they are free of impurity or dirt. And Allaah knows best.

                            i remove my shoes in my home coz my wife will not like that fact that i m making the house dirty. The same goes for ppl we visit.

                            I have few friends who have marble floors & they prefer that everyone wear shoes... it's uncivilized to move with shoes according to them. :wackos:

                              interesting, because i know we are supposed to wash after we leave a graveyard

                              maybe barefeet are easier to wash than with shoes

                              good things to know, thanks akhi
