    The Sole of A Shoe

    Islam also holds that the sole of a shoe is unclean.

    What does it mean?

    The Islamic religion states that the sole of a shoe is unclean (not to be touched).

    This is not a forum in which we laugh at anyone's religious beliefs.
    Religion itself is a laugh

    Nothing to be gained by keeping this thread open.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
