In Islam For Men It is Haram to Wear Pants below the Ankle.. whether it is Pride or with out pride if Any Body Wear Garment below the ankle it is in Hell Fire…
Our Prophet (S.A.W) said: “Whatever of the izaar (lower garment) is below the ankles is in the Fire.” (al-Bukhaari, no. 5787)
–>> Some of Brothers Argueing me that They will ware pants below the ankle with out pride and they support Abu bakr r.a. hadees..
I Responds to them Actually it is you due to lack of understading of the hadees.. i show them what Imam At-DAHABI responded about there Argument.. Al-Dhahabi said in Siyar A’laam al-Nubala’ (3/234), in response to the one who lets his garment hang below the ankle and says ‘I am not doing that to show off’:
You see him behaving in an arrogant manner and thinking of himself as not one of them (those who are arrogant), but this is a foolish notion. And you see him looking at a text that is general in meaning, and he limits its meaning on the basis of another, separate hadeeth, to conclude that it is only haraam when it is done in order to show off!
So he allows a concession based on the words of al-Siddeeq (Abu Bakr), who said: O Messenger of Allaah, my izaar slips down, and he said: “O Abu Bakr, you are not one of those who do that to show off.”
We say: Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him) did not tie his izaar in such a way that it hung below the ankles in the first place, rather he tied it so that it came above the ankle, but it slipped down after that.
And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The izaar of the believer should come to mid-calf, but it does not matter if it comes between (that point) and the ankle.” The same prohibition applies to the one who lets his trousers cover his ankles, or makes his sleeves too long. All of that is showing off which is deeply hidden in the psyche…
Shaikh-ul- Islam Shaikh. Abdul Azeez Bin Baaz said Regarding this hadees..
when Abu Bakr As-Siddiq, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “O Messenger of Allaah! “My Izar falls unless I take care (to hold it up).” The Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said to him:
“You are not one of those who do so out of conceit.”
This Hadeeth does not prove that Isbal is allowed for someone who does not do it out of conceit. It only proves that when one’s Izar, pants, etc., fall without doing it out of conceit, then he tries to stop that and fix it, in that case there is no sin on him. As for what some people do, wearing their pants below the ankles, this is not allowed. The Sunnah is that the shirt or anything else not to be lowered than the middle of the shin, in accordance with all of the Hadeeths. And with Allaah is the facilitation to do what is right.

Now Let we see daleel
1. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are three whom Allaah will not look at or praise on the Day of Judgement and theirs will be a painful punishment: the one who wears his garment below his ankles, the one who reminds others of his favours, and the one who sells his product by means of making false oaths” (reported by Muslim, no. 106)
2 The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Isbaal (wearing one’s garment below the ankles) may apply to the izaar (lower garment), the shirt or the turban. Whoever allows any part of these to trail on the ground out of arrogance, Allaah will not look at him on the Day of Judgement.” (reported by Abu Dawud, no. 4085, and al-Nisaa’i, no. 5334, with a saheeh isnaad).
3.Ibn ‘Abbaas reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah will not look at the one who wears his lower garment below his ankles.” (Reported by al-Nisaa’i in al-Mujtabaa, Kitaab al-Zeenah, Baab Isbaal al-Izaar).
4. Hudhayfah said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) took hold of the muscle of my calf (or his calf) and said, ‘This is where the izaar should stop; if you insist, it may be lower, but it should not reach the ankles.’” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, who said this is a saheeh hasan hadeeth; see Sunan al-Tirmidhi, no. 1783)
5 .All of the ahaadeeth quoted above speak against isbaal, whether or not the intention is to show off; but if a person does this deliberately out of arrogance, there is no doubt that his sin is greater. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah will not look at the one who trails his izaar on the ground out of pride.” (al-Bukhaari, no. 5788)
6 .Jaabir ibn Sulaym said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to me: ‘Beware of wearing one’s lower garment below the ankles, because this is a kind of showing-off, and Allaah does not love showing-off.’” (Regarded as saheeh by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2722).
7 .What indicates that isbaal is prohibited even if it is not done out of pride is the hadeeth of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri, may Allaah be pleased with him, who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘The lower garment of the Muslim should come down to mid-calf, but there is nothing wrong if it is between that point and the ankles. Whatever is lower than the ankles is in the Fire. Whoever trails his garment on the ground out of pride, Allaah will not look at him.” (Reported by Abu Dawud, no. 4093, with a saheeh isnaad.)
These ahaadeeth describe two different deeds, for which there will be two different punishments:
8 .Imaam Ahmad reported that Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Ya’qoob said: “I asked Abu Sa’eed: ‘Did you hear anything from the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) concerning the izaar (lower garment)?’ he said, ‘Yes, listen! ‘The izaar of the believer should come to mid-calf, although there is nothing wrong if it comes between there and the ankles, but whatever is lower than the ankles is in the Fire,’ and he said it three times.”
9 .Ibn ‘Umar said: “I passed by the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and my izaar had slipped down. He said, ‘O ‘Abdullaah, pull up your izaar!’ so I pulled it up. He said, ‘More!’ so I pulled it up more, and always made sure it was pulled up properly after that.” Some people asked, “To where did you pull it up?” He said, “To mid-calf length.” (Reported by Muslim, no. 2086; al-Dhahabi, Kitaab al-Kabaa’ir, 131-132)
Let we see What Ulama says about this Issue
1. Shaikh- Ul- Islam, Faqee ., Al- Allaamah ibne Taymiyyah ( Rahimaullah ) said : ‘For Men to keep their lower garment, shirt, izhar etc below the ankle is unanimously prohibited. The true opinion is that this is considered Haraam, this is supported with warnings of the severity of this actions in many Prophetic narrations.’ (Iqthida-ul Siraatul Mustaqeem, vol1, p343)
2 . Great Muhaddis Ibn Hajar Al Asqalani الله رحمھ states: whether the individual hangs his trouser due to pride or claiming freedom from pride, it is in both instances Makrooh Tahrimi (close to Haraam) and NOT PERMITTED. (Fath Ul Bari, vol10,p274)
3 . Imam al-Nawawi said in Sharh Muslim (14/62):
It is not permissible to let the garment hang down below the ankles if it is done in order to show off. If it is done for any other reason then it is makrooh. The apparent meaning of the ahaadeeth which limit it to letting the garment drag in order to show off indicates that it is haraam specifically when done to show off. This was stated by al-Shaafa’i who differentiated between different cases….
4 . Al-Dhahabi said in Siyar A’laam al-Nubala’ (3/234) view it is Haram… we already seen his explantion above..
5 . Ibn Qudaamah said in al-Mughni (2/298): It is makrooh to let the chemise, izaar and trousers come below the ankle, and if he does that in order to show off then it is haraam.
6 .Al-San’aani (may Allaah have mercy on him) was of the view that it is haraam, and he wrote a book concerning that entitled Istifa’ al-Aqwaal fi Tahreem al-Isbaal ‘ala al-Rijaal.
The view that it is haraam is the view favoured by most of our contemporary scholars, such as Shaykh Ibn Baaz, Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, Shaykh Ibn Jibreen, Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, the scholars of the Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas and others…
7 .Shaykh `Abdul-`Azeez Bin Baz
In a Hadeeth, Allaah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) stated that whatever falls below the ankles is in the Fire. We let our garments fall below the ankles, but not from arrogance or pride, merely out of custom and habit, is that unlawful? Will one be in the Fire for letting his garment fall below the ankles, yet he believes in Allaah? May Allaah reward you.
It is confirmed that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,
“What is below the ankles from the Izar is in the Fire.” (Al-Bukhari no. 5787)
He (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) also said,
“There are three people that Allaah will not speak to on the Day of Judgement, will not look at them, will not purify them; and for them is a painful punishment: one who lets his garment hang below his ankles, the Mannan in what he gives, and the Munffiq who does his business with false oaths.” (Muslim no. 106)
The Hadeeths with this meaning are many proving the prohibition of Al-Isbal, without qualification. If someone says they are not doing it from pride, they do not know that this practice leads to pride, that it is a form of waste regarding the garment, and that it makes the garment vulnerable to any impurities that may he on the ground.
Had that person done it from pride, the matter would be more severe and the sin would be greater, because of the saying of the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam)
“Whoever drags his Izar out of arrogance, Allaah will not look at him on the Day of Judgement.” (Al-Bukhari no. 5784 and Muslim no. 2085)
The limit for this is the ankles, so a Muslim male is not allowed to let his clothes fall below his ankles due to the Hadeeths mentioned.
As for a woman, it is allowed for her to lower her garment in order to cover her feet. As for what is reported from As-Siddiq (Abu Bakr), may Allaah be pleased with him, he said to the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam): “My Izar falls unless I take care (to hold it up).” The Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said to him,
“You are not one of those who does it out of conceit.” (Al-Bukhari no. 5784 and Abu Dawud no. 4085)
This only means that the person whose Izar hangs low does not enter under the warning of punishment if it happens unintentionally and if he tries to keep it up. But whoever else does it is accused of arrogance, or if not, then his action leads to arrogance, and it is Allaah Almighty alone who knows what is in the hearts.
The Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) warned against Al-Isbal in Hadeeths without making any qualification for the prohibition — he didn’t say it is allowed if it is done without pride.
It is obligatory upon every Muslim to warn against that which Allaah has forbidden, to stay far away from anything that leads to His anger, and to stop at the limits Allaah has set. He does this hoping for Allaah’s reward and fearing His punishment, acting upon Allaah the Almighty’s saying:
“And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it). And have Taqwa of Allaah; verily Allaah is Severe in punishment.” [Al-Hashr 59:7]
“And whosoever disobeys Allaah and His Messenger, and transgresses His (set) limits, He will cast him into the Fire, to abide therein; and he shall suffer a disgraceful torment.” [An-Nisa’ 4:14]

2 .Question: What is the ruling on rising or cuffing the pants in prayer if they are beneath the ankles?
Shaykh Zaid al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) answered:
“Obligatory. If the pants or the garment, or the trousers, or the izar, hangs beneath the ankles, the man falls into a sin from the major sins and this is not specific to the prayer, rather it is general for all times. As it appears in the hadith: Allaah will not look at the one (man) who drags his garment out of arrogance.[Muslim (2085)]
If a person comes with an attempt to remain neutral, saying ‘I don’t drag my garment due to arrogance; rather it is normal or routine.’ Then bring him the proof with another narration, the statement of the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam): Whatever is beneath the ankles is in the fire. [Musnadof Imam Ahmad (9064)]
So he (salallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) did not say, ‘due to arrogance,’ nor did he restrict this to a condition or a description. Therefore there are two punishments for the one who drags his garment, one of them being more severe than the other – and they are both severe…”
