Do I Have To Wash All the Bedsheets if Some Arousal Fluid Is Present During My Sleep?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org
Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad


Suppose we have madhy in our undergarments and some wetness in the pants is visible. Will it spread supposing I touch that surface and then touch another spot during my sleep. Although the pants show wetness, it feels slightly wet to the touch. Do we still have to wash the bedsheets and wherever we touch after that?


Assalamu alaykum,

Thank you for your question. No, if you are uncertain that the filth has spread to another part of the bed, you are not obliged to wash the sheets or blanket. You should not assume that you touched it and then spread it everywhere. Just wash the undergarments and pants since you can feel the wetness there. See how to purify in the links below:
