Do the clothes you wear to sleep
become impure (so you are not
allowed to pray Salat in them.


Praise be to Allaah.
The basic principle with regard to
clothes is that they are taahir
(pure), unless any najaasah
(impurity) has gotten onto them, in
which case they must be purified.
Merely sleeping in clothes does not
make them najis (impure); rather
they remain pure until it becomes
certain that any impurity has gotten
onto them.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said: The
basic principle with regard to a
person wearing clothes is that he
(and they) are pure so long as he is
not certain that any impurity has
gotten onto his body or clothes.
This basic principle is supported by
the words of the Prophet (blessings
and peace of Allah be upon him)
when a man complained to him that
he felt something during his prayer
– referring to breaking wind. He
said: “Do not stop (praying) unless
you hear a sound or notice a smell.”
If the individual is not certain about
that, then the basic principle is that
he remains pure. He may think it
most likely that his clothes have
become contaminated with
impurity, but so long as he is not
certain about it, the basic principle
is that he remains pure. End quote.
Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen,
For more information please see the
answer to question no.
It is permissible to pray in clothes in
which one has slept, so long as they
are pure and cover the ‘awrah,
although it is better and more
perfect to wear beautiful clothes
that look good for prayer. That is in
obedience to the command of Allah,
may He be exalted, in the verse
(interpretation of the meaning): “O
Children of Adam! Take your
adornment (by wearing your clean
clothes), while praying” [al-A‘raaf
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah
have mercy on him) was asked
about the ruling on praying in
nightclothes and attending
gatherings wearing them. He said:
There is nothing wrong with praying
in nightclothes if they are pure,
whether one comes to the mosque
wearing them or not, unless those
clothes will attract attention and
criticism, and people will talk about
him in their gatherings because of
that. People should avoid anything
that may be a cause of people
backbiting about them. End quote.
Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen,
And Allah knows best.
