Ruling 2209

If the rented item is destroyed, the lessee will not be responsible (ḍāmin) for it as long as he was not negligent in safeguarding it nor excessive in using it. Similarly, if, for example, the cloth given to a tailor is destroyed, the tailor will not be responsible for it as long as he was neither negligent in taking care of it nor excessive in using it.
