Fatwa No: 399820

Question

Asalam alakum, i want to know that while washing clothes, with urine on them, if the water during washing gets on ones clothes (or body) makes them impure and also while washing the clothes if a persons touches the clothes he is wearing do they become impure?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

If the water by which the impurity is washed spreads over something, and this water has changed with impurity, then whatever this water touches becomes impure. However, if this water has not changed with impurity, then it is ruled to be pure. In this case, whatever this water touches does not become impure.

If a person touches his clothes while washing the impurity, then his clothes do not become impure just because of this as long as he is not certain that it is stained with impurity.

Allah knows best.
