It is better for a woman to wear socks even if her garment covers her feet

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
If a womans abiah is long enough to cover her feet does she have to wear socks?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

The Muslim woman is required to cover all of her body in front of men. Hence she is allowed to let her garment drag by being a cubit longer in order to cover her feet. What the woman has to do is to cover her feet either by wearing a loose and long garment or by wearing socks or the like. If she covers her feet then she does not have to wear socks, but if she wears socks this will be more covering, so it is recommended. And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
