If the only clothing available is najis, offering the prayer in such clothing is valid in cases of cold weather or similar necessities. If it can be taken off, the prayer should be offered twice, once with it and once while naked, based on compulsory precaution.
The mentioned necessity rarely occurs in our time since making use of a covering material during prayer is easily done.

As for the People of the Book, they are considered tahir.
