Diaper in the wash

Fatwaa ID: 1667

Salam. I found a diaper from the clothes I washed. I don’t know if it was clean or dirty. Should I wash the clothes again? Or the ones that have the diaper stuff on it is enough?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Your question is not clear. I understand that you accidentally washed a diaper in the washing machine. You are not sure however if the diaper was clean or dirty. In the enquired situation, if you see signs of impurity on the washed clothing, then wash the clothes again. If there are no signs of impurity, then regard the clothing to be clean. You do not need to rewash anything.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
