Ruling on doing wudoo’ naked

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:
The man’s ‘awrah is from the navel to the knees, so what is the ruling on doing wudoo’ naked or wearing shorts that do not cover the knees?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

His wudoo’ is valid, because uncovering the ‘awrah or wearing shorts does not invalidate his wudoo’, but it is haraam for him to uncover his ‘awrah in front of anyone except his wife or concubine (a slave woman who belongs to him and with whom he is permitted to have intercourse).

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.
