Abu Dawud Book 1, Hadith Number 159.

Chapter : Wiping over the stockings.

Narated By Al-Mughirah ibn Shu’bah : The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) performed ablution and wiped over the stockings and shoes.

Abu Dawud said: ‘Abd al-Rahman b. Mahdi did not narrate this tradition because the familiar version from al-Mughairah says that the Prophet (PBUH) wiped over the socks.

Abu Musa al-Ashari has also reported: The Prophet (PBUH) wiped over the stockings. But the chain of narrators in this tradition is neither continuous nor strong.

‘Ali b. Abi Talib, Ibn Mas’ud, al-Bara b. ‘Azib, Anas b. Malik, Abu Umamah, Sahl b. Sa’d and ‘Amr b. Huraith also wiped over the stockings.
