What is the hukm of praying salaah in such tight clothing that the position of the private parts is pronounced?

Question:

As salaamu ’alaykum,

1. If one performs any salah with fitted/tight trousers where the position of the private part is pronounced then is the salah valid, or not?

2. If it's not then is qadah required

3. If ‘Ulema differ over this then can we follow the easiest position, meaning that the salaah is valid?

Answer:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Wa ‘alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,

It is not permissible to wear such clothes. One must refrain from wearing such clothes and repent to Allah for the salahs performed in this situation. Even though salah performed in this situation will be valid but since this is a makrooh act one must refrain from doing it.

والله اعلم

And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
