Prayer in the garment that one does not know whether it is pure or not

1402- عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ قُلْتُ لِعَطَاءٍ‏:‏ أُصَلِّي فِي ثَوْبٍ أُعِرْتُهُ لاَ أَدْرِي أَطَاهِرٌ أَمْ لاَ‏؟‏ قَالَ‏:‏ نَعَمْ‏.‏


1402 – Ibn Jurayj said: I said to ʿAṭā: Can I pray in a garment which I borrowed, not knowing whether it is pure (ṭāhir) or not?  He said: Yes.


1403- عَنِ الثَّوْرِيِّ قَالَ‏:‏ إِنِ اشْتَرَى رَجُلٌ مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ ثَوْبًا مِنْ مُشْرِكٍ، أَوِ اسْتَعَارَهُ فَلْيُصَلِّ فِيهِ، وَلاَ يَغْسِلُهُ إِلاَّ أَنْ يَعْرِفَ فِيهِ شَيْئًا‏.‏


1403 – al-Thawrī said: If a man from the Muslims bought a garment from a mushrik, or he borrowed it, he is to pray in it and he does not wash it unless he recognizes something in it.


1404- سَمِعْتُ الثَّوْرِيَّ يَقُولُ‏:‏ لاَ بَأْسَ أَنْ يُصَلِّيَ الرَّجُلُ فِي ثَوْبِ النَّصْرَانِيِّ وَالْمَجُوسِيِّ وَالْيَهُودِيِّ، إِلاَّ أَنْ يَعْلَمَ فِيهِ شَيْئًا‏.‏


1404 – I heard al-Thawrī saying: There is no harm with the man praying in the garment of the Christian, the Zoroastrian, and the Jew, unless he knows something in it.
