Can a woman wash her own clothes with her husband’s clothes in the washing machine at a time, given that there are not any impure clothes? My Mother in law says this is not permissible in Islam because the husband has higher rank than woman. What Islam says about it? Is there anything related to that in Quran? And could please elaborate from where this concept has came accross?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
It is permissible for a woman to wash her clothes with her husband’s clothes in the washing machine. There is no basis for the claim in reference in Shariah.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
