Title

Impurity on the bed after having intercourse

Question

I would to know that when you have sex with you husband, in terms of the bedding or the place that  you had intercourse on, do you have to wash it if non of the liquids that emits from the private parts went on the bedding or the place that intercouse took place? what is the ruling on cleaning the place? what if liquids did go on the bedding do you constantly have to wash the bedding?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

If the bed did not get soiled with semen, then it is not necessary to wash the bed. If the bed got soiled with the semen then it will suffice to wash the soiled portion of the bed.

And Allah knows best

Wassalam
