QUESTION:

I would like to ask the following question regarding Ayat Seestani's 
fatwa for covering the feet for women.

I follow Ayat Seestani's taqleed but I never used to cover the top of my 
feet as i have never worn socks and find it too hot and unbearable to 
wear socks. I did not know UNTIL recently that the upper part of feet to 
cover is a must.

Can I follow the taqleed of another marjia for this particular issue i.e 
who allows the feet to remain uncovered. If I am not mistaken Imam 
Khomeini allowed it. But can i follow of a dead marjia. If not, is there 
any other living marjia who allows this i.e if i am allowed to deviate 
from this point.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANSWER:

On this issue, you have to follow the ruling of Ayatullah Seestani.

I am not aware of any Marja who allows the baring of the feet in Hijab.

Salaams,

Asgherali M M Jaffer
