What is the starting time of wiping over socks? متى يبدأ المسح على الجوارب؟

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

As to what follows:

In response to your question, we say, and with Allah Almighty lies all success:

For wiping over socks, the scholars have two opinions:

There are those who say that the starting time of wiping is from the first breaking of *wudhu*. So if the socks were put on now, and the *wudhu* broke after an hour, the calculation of one day and one night begins after an hour.

The second opinion is that it is calculated after the first wiping to take place after the first breaking of *wudhu*. This means: If you put on socks now and prayed Maghrib, then prayed `Isha, then slept, and then got up at Fajr and wiped over your socks, then this is the first wiping. So calculate from one Fajr to the next Fajr. But according to the other opinion, if one’s *wudhu* was broken at 9 PM after `Isha, for example, by other than sleeping, then one starts wiping from 9 PM to 9 PM the next day.

The more correct of these two opinions, in what is apparent – and all knowledge is with Allah – is the second opinion, where the wiping period starts with the first wiping after the breaking of *wudhu*.

And Allah knows best.
