Clean Clothes Getting Wet With Rain

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If clean clothes are put out to dry, do they remain paak if it rains and they become soaked or do they need to be re-washed? Similarly, the container the clothes are placed in after they are dry was outside and also became soaked as did the washing line. Do these items remain paak or do they need to be re-washed?

A: They don’t need to be re-washed. Rain is absolutely pure.
