Have the commentators of Hadith given a reason as to why Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered us to walk barefoot occasionally?
Mulla ‘Ali Al Qari (rahimahullah) cites three reasons as to why Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ordered us to walk barefoot occasionally :
- To create humility within a person
- To break one’s ego
- To become accustomed to it as sometimes a person will be forced to walk barefoot
(Mirqat, vol. 8 pg. 291, Hadith: 4449)
See the Hadith references here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
