Performing Salaah with gloves


Is it appropriate to pray with gloves on the hands? We are in the Winter months and I have noticed some brothers not removing their gloves when praying in the masjid.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to perform Salaah with gloves. The Salaah will be valid. [1]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

(وأخرج يديه من كميه) عند التكبير وهو أدب وليس بفرض في شيء من الصلاة خلافا لمن لا علم له بالفقه من المصنفين فيه على ما بيناه في الشرح
