If a washing machine washes the clothes twice, is this sufficient to cleanse the clothes of any najaasah?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Washing machines wash the clothes twice. Is this sufficient to cleanse the clothes of najaasah?

Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen (may Allaah 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 Allaah knows best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
