Stains on the Clothes After Getting It Washed in the Washing Machine

CategoriesTaharah [395]

Fatwa ID: 05665


Answered by: Maulana Sibghat Ullah




I washed some towels and other clothes in a washing machine and after getting them out of the machine I found a small piece (not just a colour trace) on one of the towels which – excuse me – looked like faeces to me. What is the ruling regarding the towels and clothes?


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




If your clothes have impurities and your conscience thinks of them to be impure then, it is necessary to wash these clothes again.[i]



Only Allah knows best.
