If a washing machine washes the clothes twice, is this sufficient to cleanse theclothes of any najaasah?


Washing machines wash the clothes twice. Is this sufficient to cleanse the clothes of najaasah?


Praise be to Allah.

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allah ibn Jibreen (may Allah preserve him), who answered as follows:

 The ruling has to do with the najaasah itself. Once the najaasah is removed from the clothes, they become taahir (pure). Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said that there is no specific number of washings required for najaasah to be removed.

 And Allah knows best.
