Do I have to purify all the clothes

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I have accidentally washed a pair of jeans that was impure from urine stains with pure clothes. Do I have to purify all the clothes now or just the jeans? Some water may have been shared between the pure clothes and the impure jeans.

Jazak Allah for your guidance.



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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh

We assume you washed the clothes in a washing machine. If the machine rinses the clothes and throws out the water and takes new water, the impurities will be removed in the rinsing process. Accordingly the impure clothes with the other clothes will be pure. If the clothes were washed manually, then if the jeans was washed and rinsed with clean water, it will be pure.
