Washing impure clothes with pure clothes


Assalamu alaikum,

Is it allowed to wash/soak najis cloths along with paak cloths? not in a washing machine, but with hands only


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear Brother,

If paak clothes are merely soaked with napaak clothes, but the clothes are washed separately, then the washed clothes will be paak.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

لُفَّ طَاهِرٌ فِي نَجِسٍ مُبْتَلٍّ بِمَاءٍ إنْ بِحَيْثُ لَوْ عُصِرَ قَطَرَ تَنَجَّسَ وَإِلَّا لَا

وَلَوْ لُفَّ فِي مُبْتَلٍّ بِنَحْوِ بَوْلٍ، إنْ ظَهَرَ نَدَاوَتُهُ أَوْ أَثَرُهُ تَنَجَّسَ وَإِلَّا لَا
