Ask The Imam Question and Answer

859 I would like to know what becomes Napak (Unclean) after sexual intercourse or foreplay. It is clear that after sexual intercourse or foreplay both men and women would have to perform Ghusl to become Pak (Clean), but until Ghusl is performed do we consider items we wear or touch become Napak as well?

An example in my mind is that after intercourse I wear clothing which are clean/new. Then I perform Ghusl, am I permitted to wear the same clothing after Ghusl? can I perform Namaz, pray Quran etc thereafter.
Thank you for an important question.

After sexual intercourse, the couple are required to perform the ritual bath as you have pointed out. The clothing only needs to be cleaned if there is impurity (semen etc.) on them. A person does not have to clean them purely and only on the basis that they were worn during the intercourse.

So to answer your question, you can wear the same clothing after the bath if you know that no impurities are on the clothes.
