Walking barefoot – Grounding / Earthing

Did you know: it’s Sunnah to occasionally walk barefoot?

A man from the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) traveled to Fadaalah ibn Ubayd (may Allah be pleased with him) when he was in Egypt.

After a brief conversation he asked him: “Why do I not see any shoes on you?”
Fadaalah replied: “The Prophet (ﷺ) used to command us to go barefoot sometimes”.
[Authentic. Abu Dawud, Book 33, Hadith 4148]

There are many non-muslim articles that suggest walking barefoot (called Earthing) is going to be the next health craze.

This is due to the uncanny health benefits of your bare feet walking on pure earth.
