 Should a woman who attains purity change her clothes even if they are not stained with blood or any impurity?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alyhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him said: "No, she does not have to change her clothes as the state of menstruation does not affect the purity of the body; rather it is the menstrual blood itself that makes impure what it touches. This is why the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) ordered women to wash the spots that were stained with such blood on their clothing and then pray while wearing them."

Allah Knows best.
