1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from ibn Bukayr who has said the following: “Zurarah once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about foxes, fennec and squirrel and so on of hair. He (the Imam) then took out a book that he (the Imam) thought was of the dictations of the Messenger of Allah and it said, ’Salah (prayer) performed with hair of everything of inedible flesh is unlawful. Thus, Salah (prayer) performed with the fur, hair, skin, urine, dung, milk and with everything from such animals is invalid and unacceptable until one performs with something else which Allah has made of edible flesh.’ He (the Imam) then said, ‘O Zurarah, this is from the Messenger of Allah; preserve it. O Zurarah, if it is from edible animal, performing Salah (prayer) with its fur, urine, hair, dung, milk and everything from it is permissible, if you know that proper slaughtering has taken place, which makes it clean. If it is from something which is not made lawful for you to consume as food but is made unlawful, performing Salah (prayer) with it is invalid, regardless if slaughtered properly or not.’”

2. Ali ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah has narrated from Ishaq al-‘Alaviy from al-Hassan ibn Ali from Muhammad ibn Sulayman al- Daylamiy from ‘ Aytham ibn Aslam al-Najashiy from abu Basir who has said the following: “I once asked abu ’Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about Salah (prayer) with furs. He (the Imam) said, ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn was sensitive to cold and fur from Hijaz was not sufficient for him because tanning is by the pod of a species of a tree. He would send for fur from Iraq and he (the Imam) used it, but during Salah (prayer) removed it as well as the shirt underneath the fur. When asked about it he (the Imam) answered, ’People of Iraq consider using of skins of dead animals as lawful. They think tanning makes them clean.’”

3. Through the same chain of narrators as that of the previous Hadith the following is narrated from Muhammad ibn Sulayman from Ali ibn abu Hamzah who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, and abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about clothes of fur in Salah (prayer). He (the Imam) said, ‘Do not perform Salah (prayer) with it unless it is made clean, by properly slaughtering.’ I then asked, ’Is proper slaughtering done with iron? He (the Imam) said, ’Yes, if it is of edible flesh.’ I then asked about that which is of edible flesh other than sheep. He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not an offense to use fur of squirrel; it is an animal that does not eat flesh and it is not of that which the Messenger of Allah prohibited; the Messenger of Allah prohibited everything that has dogtooth and claw.’”

I ask the owner, ‘Is it of properly slaughtered animals?’ He says, ‘Yes, it is of properly slaughtered animals.’ Can I sell it as that from properly slaughtered animals? He (the Imam) said, ‘No, you cannot do so; however, it is not an offense to sell it and say that the one from whom you purchased has said that it is from properly slaughtered animals.’ I then asked, ‘What has destroyed it?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘It is because people of Iraq consider dead animals as clean, thinking that tanning makes it lawful and it is its properly slaughtering and then they do not remain satisfied without saying that it is from the Messenger of Allah.’”

He (the Imam) said, ‘No, there is no lawful benefit in it.’ I then said, ‘We are told that the Messenger of Allah once passed by the dead body of a goat and said, ‘What has happened to the owners of this goat? If they could not benefit from its flesh they could benefit from its skin.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘That goat belonged to Sawdah, daughter of Zam‘ah, wife of the Holy prophet. It was an emaciated ewe and its flesh was not useable, so they left until it died. Thus, the Holy prophet, said, ‘If the owners could not benefit from its flesh why did they not benefit from its skin after slaughtering it properly.’”

13.

He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not an offense to have a knife, or a belt for a traveler in case he needs them as well as a key for which one is afraid about forgetting it. It is not an offense to have a sword or weapons during a war and in other times. It is not permissible to perform Salah (prayer) with iron; it is Najis (unclean) and metamorphosed. ’ ”

33. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from al-‘Amrakiy from Ali ibn Ja‘far who has said the following: “I once asked abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about a man who performed Salah (prayer) with a bird in his sleeve. He (the Imam) said, ‘If he is afraid about it then it is not harmful.’ He (the narrator) has said that he then asked him (the Imam) about anklets if women and children could use them during Salah (prayer). He (the Imam) said, ‘It is not an offense if they are silent, but if they make noise then it is not permissible.’”
