1)Some times my Pant stiches slightly open in Namaz during Qaida conditions. Directly body will be not visible, but if we see strongly it can identify the visibility of body. In this conditions Namaz is valid or not?
2) Some times we ware such a types of cloths that its thicness will be very less. Due to which in rainy season or some other reason our cloths will be so wet that our body colour will be visible, which is fardh to cover the body during namaz. In this conditions Namaz is valid or not valid?

The answer to your question is as follows:

It is compulsory to cover the private parts of the body during namaz. For males, from below the naval to below the knees is compulsory to be covered well. The right hip & the left hip, the right thigh & the left thigh, and posterior etc all are counted one part each.

Uncovering 4th of one part (or more) is deemed to equal the "exposure of the private parts" and, therefore, prohibitive to prayer. If the uncovered part is less than 4th of that part then the prayer is valid.

Likewise, covering the private part (Aurah) with thick and opaque clothes that do not display the skin color underneath them without close observation is compulsory. If a person performs prayer in wet clothes that reveal the color of the skin clearly then it is prohibited and the person must repeat the prayer performed while wearing them. And Allah knows best
