Read hadith without wudu.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
brother we all work for a call center and inbetween for 10 minutes we all get together and we read hadis ( fazael-e-aamal) and that time we dont have a optiong to remove our shoes and to do ouzu so we read it without removing the shoe and without ouzu is there any harm.

Read hadith without wudu
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 6:
6 O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer wash your faces and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles.
The only acts in Islam whereby the wudu is absolutely obligatory and a pre-condition is when one is about to offer a prayer or while performing the tawaaf of the Holy Kaaba; if these two rites are performed without the wudu, it would nullify the rites.
There is absolutely no obligation or requirement for the believers in Shariah to be in the state of wudu or remove their shoes when reciting the hadiths of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
