I saw a Hadith which was referenced to Daraqutni, in which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to Sayyiduna ‘Ammar ibn Yasir (radiyallahu ‘anhuma):

“Clothing will only be washed from five things; Urine, faeces, wine, blood and sperm”

Is it authentic?



Imams Daraqutni and Bayhaqi (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. However, Imam Daraqutni (rahimahullah) has declared a narrator extremely weak and Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith a fabrication (باطل لا أصل له).

(Sunan Daraqutni, Hadith: 458, As Sunanul Kubra of Imam Bayhaqi, vol. 1 pg. 14. Also see: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 73)


The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.



1) There are many alternate proofs from Quran and Hadith which prove the impurity of the items mentioned in this Hadith. The Hadith in question is not the only proof.

2) I have merely answered your question regarding the authenticity of the Hadith. This should therefore not be viewed as a Fiqh ruling. Kindly consult a Mufti/Darul Ifta for further clarification.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
