Can impure clothes be washed in a washing machine? If not, will it be okay to wash it three times? Will that purify the clothes?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Impure clothes washed in a washing machine will become pure and clean. However, it is strongly advised to ensure that one's washing machine undergoes three cycles of wash/spin. This is to avoid the scholarly difference regarding this issue, i.e. so that one's clothes become pure by consensus of the scholars.
And Allah knows best.
