I would like to know how many times do we have to wash the najees 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)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I would like to know how many times do we have to wash the najees clothes(clothes used during intercourse or menturation). Please guide me in the path of islam and sunna.

Wash clothes impure sexual
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.
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.13
Purifying the body and clothes
If the clothes or body are contaminated with impurities, it is obligatory to wash them with water until they are cleansed of the impurities. This is especially the case if the impurity is visible, such as blood. If there are some stains that remain after washing which would be extremely difficult to remove, they can be overlooked. If the impurity is not visible, such as urine, it is sufficient to wash it one time. Asma bint Abu Bakr related that a woman came to the Prophet (saws) and said, "Our clothes are contaminated with menstrual blood. What should we do about this?" He (saws) said, "Scrape it, rub it with water, pour water over it and then pray in it."
This is related by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
If clothes are touched by impurities like blood, urine, sexual discharge, etc., it would be sufficient to thoroughly wash the clothes in water even only once to purify them of their impurities.
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.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
