In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
There is no need to wash new clothes before wearing them which have been purchased in order for the Salaah to be valid.
Please bear in mind the following Dua (Supplication) before wearing new clothes.
اَللّهُـمَّ لَـكَ الحَـمْـدُ أنْـتَ كَسَـوْتَنيهِ، أَسْأَلُـكَ مِـنْ
خَـيْرِهِ وَخَـيْرِ مَا صُنِعَ لَـه، وَأَعوذُ بِكَ مِـنْ شَـرِّهِ وَشَـرِّ مَـاصُنِعَ لَـهُ
Allâhumma laka-l-hamdu. Anta kasawtanîhi. As’aluka min khayrihi wa khayri mâ sunica lahu, wa acudhu bika min sharrihi wa sharri mâ sunica lahu.
“O Allah, for You is all praise, You have clothed me with it (i.e. the garment), I ask You for the good of it and the good for which it was made, and I seek refuge with You from the evil of it and the evil for which it was made.”
And Allah Ta’ala knows best
Mufti Luqman Hansrot
