    why do y’all wash your feet so much? don’t you wear shoes?

    • Sara

      Basically, before we offer prayer, we have to be clean. So we must make ablution before we pray to kind of get rid of any accumulated dirt. Part of the process of ablution is to wash your feet. So I guess if someone found themselves needing to pray but didn’t have Wudu (ablution) they’d have to wash their feet in a public bathrooms, although I would personally just let it wait.
      Hope this was helpful.

        yes I understand wudu. my question is why would you consider your feet dirty if you have shoes and socks on.
        ” to kind of get rid of any accumulated dirt” what accumulated dirt? if you life in a developed country you should be walking around on concrete most the time. it is not like you are wearing sandals and in the desert.
        isn’t this a ritual that is no longer needed?

          We all accumulate dirt even when we sometimes can’t see. When we go in the shower, we aren’t usually visibly dirty, are we? I mean, we go wash our bodies, but we have been wearing clothes all day, right?
          Fluff from socks gets between toes, nothing serious.
          Just a ritual we follow. And we don’t do it five times a day. sometimes the wudu lasts over more than one namaaz
