Washing visible and non-visible impurities

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had a question regarding the purity or purification of bed sheets or similar stuff impacted with semen (both visible stains as well as invisible). Please give a detailed and clear idea about the ruling regarding the same. If it is impure then how do I wash large bed sheets, mattresses or blankets in both cases having visible semen stains as well as non visible semen. If I sleep in the same setup do my cloths or body get impure?


A: If it is visible then just wash the soiled area and let it dry. If it is not visible then don’t worry about it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
