Clothing below the ankles in ruku for males?

 

Question and Answer:

 

Q. Sometimes during ruku and sajdah mu kurtah goes below my ankles,but when I am standing it is above my ankles. Is this ok?

This is permissible. The prohibition of the clothing being below the ankles for males applies to the condition of standing and walking. (Bazlul Majhood).
