Folding of trousers in prayers?


Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "The part of an Izar which hangs below the ankles is in the Fire." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI [Volume 7, Book 72, Number 678]

Yahya related to me from Malik from Abdullah ibn Dinar from Abdullah ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "A person who drags his garment in arrogance will not be looked at by Allah on the Day of Rising." MALIK'S MUWATTA [Dress, Book 48, Number 48.5.9]

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: The Prophet said Allah will not look, on the Day of Resurrection at the person who drags his garment (behind him) out of conceit. On that Abu Bakr said, "O Allah's Apostle! One side of my Izar hangs low if I do not take care of it." The Prophet said, 'You are not one of those who do that out of conceit." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI [Volume 7, Book 72, Number 675]

Thus it is clear that a believer at all times should avoid & abstain from all types of things that beget arrogance & pride for his possession and if wearing the ‘izar’ lower the ankle begets arrogance, then the believer must indeed abstain from it.

The command of prophet(pbuh) is not to hang the lower garments below the ankles for all the times and not only when one offer prayers. But if one folds his trouser only at the times of prayer, then it would not be considered righteousness as Allah says in Quran:

"And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, leave it. And fear Allah: truly Allah is severe in punishment. " [Qur'an 59:7]

If one so fears Allah and wants to make absolutely sure to stay within the letter and the spirit of the law, then it would be safest and absolutely best if one wears clothes whereby the lower garment is above his ankles. See Also This Question:Is it Compulsory to Wear the Trousers Above the Ankles?
