Is there a hadeeth which forbids hanging out children’s and infants’ clothes (on a washing line) after the sun sets?

Question

Is there a hadeeth which forbids hanging out children’s and infants’ clothes (on a washing line) after the sun sets or not? If the answer is yes, how sound is it?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

There is no hadeeth in the Sunnah, as far as we know, to suggest that there is any prohibition on hanging out children’s clothes after sunset. Rather what is forbidden is for children themselves to go out after sunset, in the sense of letting them go out to play and so on. 

We have discussed this issue previously on our website in some detail. Please see the answer to question no. 125922 and 127141

And Allah knows best.
