Ruling on the prayer of the one who drags his garment, answered by Shaykh Muqbil Al Waadi’ee rahimahullah
Is the prayer of the ‘musbil’ (one that drags his garment) invalid, and what is the condition of the hadeeth: “Allah does not accept the prayer of the musbil”?
‘Isbal’ (dragging the garment) is impermissible, and the prayer is not invalid, it is impermissible in prayer and other than it, as for that hadeeth (which the questioner mentioned) then what I remember of it and it was a long time ago, it is from the report of Abee Ja’far and he is unknown so the hadeeth is not authentic. But ‘isbal’ itself it impermissible, the Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him and his family said: “Allah will not look to the one who drags his garment arrogantly”, and he said, “Beware of dragging your garment for verily it is from arrogance”. And the hadeeth, “There are three types of people Allah will not speak to, and He will not look at, and for them is a painful punishment”, from them, “musbil”.
