assalam brothers and sisters,
i have a few quick questions re wiping over socks for wudu.
Firstly, i was under the impression that leather or thick socks with leather like qualities were required for this, and ordinary. fairly thin, cotton/nylon etc socks would not do. However, i was looking on youtube for an answer to my second question when icame across a video by an Imam called Hassan Khalil who says or seems to imply that there are too many rulings on this which is making something which is supposed to make our religion eaxier, actually harder and he implies you can wear any type of sock.
He says it around the 4min 50 sec mark.
Secondly, the reason i was in youtube is i was looking for an example of how to do it. I know you do not need to wipe the sides or back so do you just wet the fingers and run them from your toes to the ankle (i.e., from the toes all the way down?)
