2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Um ay r from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar from Muyassir who has said the following: “I once said to abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘I instruct the slave-girl to wash my clothes because of semen, but she does not pay proper attention to washing and I perform Salah (prayer) in them and it (semen) is dry. He (the Imam) said, ‘You must do your Salah (prayer) again. Had you yourself washed it, you would not have been required to perform your Salah (prayer) again.’”

If he thinks, but is not certain and has not seen the polluted area, he must pour water on it. If he is certain that semen has come in contact with his clothes but he has not seen the polluted spot, he must wash all of his clothes; it is better.’”
