How many times do we have to wash the najis(the dress which we used during menstural time or intercourse)clothes?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

Assalamu aliakum. How many times do we have to wash the najis(the dress which we used during menstural time or intercourse)clothes?

Menses wash how many times
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 6:
6 O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer wash your faces and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity bathe your whole body. But if ye are ill or on a journey or one of you cometh from offices of nature or ye have been in contact with women and ye find no water then take for yourselves clean sand or earth and rub therewith your faces and hands. Allah doth not wish to place you in a difficulty but to make you clean and to complete His favor to you that ye may be grateful.
If one is in the state of major ceremonial impurity (menstruation, post-sexual intercourse, etc.), it is absolutely obligatory in Shariah that they should purify themselves with a ghusl or full bath before they make themselves available for prayer.
If some impurity has touched ones clothes during menstruation or intercourse, it would suffice to wash the part of the clothes where the impurities might have touched, or wash the clothes even only once.that would more than suffice to purify ones clothes.
Your Question: How many times do we have to wash the najis(the dress which we used during menstural time or intercourse)clothes?
There is absolutely no obligation in Shariah for the believers to wash their clothes which have been touched by an impurity more than once.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
