The Lowest Allowable Point for a Garment
Question:

What is the limit for dragging one's garment?
Answer:

Dragging one's Izar is unlawful for men, and whoever continues to do so after having been warned should be censured. The place for a believer's garment is the middle of his shin, and any point between that and the ankle is permissible. Whatever goes below the ankles is unlawful, and the one who does so is punished in the Hereafter, and censured in this life. This is because of what was recorded by Al-Bukhari and Muslim, that the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said,

ما أسفل من الكعبين من الإزار ففي النار

"What is below the ankles from the Izar is in the Fire" (Al-Bukhari no. 5787)

There are other authentic Hadeeths in this regard.
