Offering Salah in wrappers and garments


A: It was narrated on the authority of `Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) that: The Prophet (peace be upon him) did not use to offer Salah in our wrappers. (Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, and Al-Tirmidhy who ranked it as Sahih [authentic]) The wording of Al-Tirmidhy is: The Prophet (peace be upon him) did not use to offer Salah in the garment of his wives. The permissibility of offering Salah in the wrappers of women was then concluded from the Hadith related by Abu Dawud in his Sunan (Hadith compilations classified by jurisprudential themes) on the authority of Maymunah (may Allah be pleased with her) who said: The Prophet (peace be upon him) offered Salah while there was a woolen robe over him along with one of his wives who was in the period of menses. The Prophet (peace be upon him) offered Salah while this robe was over him. It was narrated on the authority of `Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) that: Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) offered Salah at night while I was by his side. I was in the period of menses and there was a woolen robe over me and the Prophet. Concerning the permissibility of (Part No. 5; Page No. 158)  offering Salah in wrappers and garments, it is conditional on them being free of Najasah (impurities).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
