Answered by: Maulana Eunus Ali
Suppose my menses/period of 7 days is complete and I only take a normal bath. I do not perform Ghusl to become paak and then I wear fresh clothes [not the same clothes which I wore during my periods]. Will these clothes become impure? Do I need to wash and purify them or can I wear them without purifying after ghusl? Also, can I pray in the same clothes without purifying/washing them?

Mu'adhah said: "I asked 'Aishah about the menstruating woman whose garment was touched by blood. She said: 'She should wash it, then if its traces are still left, let her change it (the spot) with (something) yellowish in colour. And I have had my menstruation during the time of the Messenger of Allah three times without washing my garment."
Asma' daughter of Abu Bakr said: I heard a woman asking the Messenger of Allah : What should any of us do with her cloth (in which she menstruated) when she becomes purified? Can she pray in that (cloth)?
He said: She should see; if she finds blood in it, she should scratch it with some water and sprinkle upon it (some water) and pray so long as she does not find (any blood).
If there is no trace of blood found on the clothing, then it will not be necessary to wash and purify the clothing and salah will also be permissible in them.
