bukhari:5799Abū Nuʿaym > Zakariyyāʾ > ʿĀmir > ʿUrwah b. al-Mughīrah from his father

One night I was with the Prophet ﷺ on a journey. He asked (me), "Have you got water with you?" I replied, "Yes" So he got down from his she-camel and went away till he disappeared in the darkness of the night. Then he came back and I poured water for him from the pot (for the ablution). He washed his face and hands while he was wearing a woollen cloak (the sleeves of which were narrow), so he could not take his arms out of it. So he took them out from underneath the cloak. Then he washed his forearms and passed his wet hands over his head. Then I tried to take off his Khuffs (socks made from thick fabric or leather), but he said, "Leave them, for I have performed ablution before putting them on." And so he passed his wet hands over them.

muslim:274fMuḥammad b. ʿAbdullāh b. Numayr from my father > Zakariyyāʾ > ʿĀmir > ʿUrwah b. al-Mughīrah from his father

I was one night with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ on a journey. He said to me: Have you any water with you? I said: Yes. He (the Holy Prophet) came down from his ride and went on till he disappeared in the darkness of night. He then came back and I poured water for him from the jar. He washed his face, He had a woollen gown on him and he could not bring out his forearms from it (i. e. from its sleeves) and consequently he brought them out from under his gown. He washed his forearms, wiped over his head. I then bent down to take off his socks. But he said: Leave them, for my feet were clean when I put them in, and he only wiped over them.

abudawud:151Musaddad > ʿĪsá b. Yūnus from my father > al-Shaʿbī > ʿUrwah b. al-Mughīrah b. Shuʿbah from his father

We accompanied the Messenger of Allah ﷺ to a caravan, and I had a jug of water. He went to relieve himself and came back. I came to him with the jug of water and poured upon him. He washed his hands and face. He had a tight-sleeved Syrian woolen gown. He tried to get his forearms out, but the sleeve of the gown was very narrow, so he brought his hands out from under the gown. I then bent down to take off his socks. But he said to me : Leave them, for my feet were clean when I put them in, and he only wiped over them. Yunus said on the authority of al-Sha’bi that ‘Urwah narrated his tradition from his father before him, and his father reported it from the Messenger of Allah ﷺ.

ahmad:18235Yaḥyá b. Saʿīd > Zakariyyā > ʿĀmir > ʿUrwah b. al-Mughīrah from his father

[Machine] I was with the Prophet (PBUH) one night during a journey, and he asked me, "Do you have water with you?" I replied, "Yes." He then dismounted from his riding animal and went away from me until he disappeared into the darkness of the night. He had a cloak on him, so he took out his hands but was unable to take them out from the sleeves. He then took out his hands from under the cloak, washed his hands, wiped his head, and then I intended to remove his shoes. He told me, "Leave them, for I have put them on while they were clean."
