Praying While Wearing A T-shirt. by Taamas111 (m): 3:55pm on January 12

Is it allowed to Offer Prayer while Wearing T-
Shirt (With naked Elbows). I heard its
Makrooh to Offer Prayer in T-Shirt. Kindly

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

There is no impediment for a man to
perform prayers in short sleeve garment
which does not cover his elbows. According
to our knowledge, no scholar implicitly
stated that prayer with uncovered elbows is
disliked for a male. No doubt, the prayer of
a man who is completely adorned, wearing
his best clothes is preferable, for the saying
of Allah which means: { O children of Aadam,
take your adornment [i.e. wear your
clothing] at every Masjid, and eat and drink,
but be not excessive. }[Quran 7:31].
Imaam As-Shawkaani may Allah have mercy
on him, wrote explaining the above verse:
''adornment' here means the clothes the
people normally put on in order to look
good. They are ordered to adorn themselves
whenever they attend the prayers in
If uncovering the elbows in the prayers is
contrary to the adornment and an indication
of carelessness in a given community, then it
should be avoided.

Allah Knows best.
