Washing Powder that has Najasah in it

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Belaal Ahmed


If washing powder has any Najis substances in it, is it permissible to pray with the clothes which were washed from that powder in the washing machine?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

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


In most cases, the animal by-products found in detergents and washing powders go through a complete transformation. Hence, such products will be considered pure and it will be permissible to use them to wash one’s clothes. Therefore, praying in such clothes will be allowed.[1]

Only Allah knows best
