My soul has become proud, and I wanted to humble it.
If someone wants to do wudhoo in the toilet – in the [same] place where he relieves himself, is it permissible for him to utter “bismillaah” [بسم الله] before doing wudhoo?
O Allaah, if you forgive me, then you are qualified to do so, and if you punish me, then I am qualified to be so.
Which of the two is best: [that] I glorify Allaah ( سبحان الله ), or [that] I seek forgiveness from Allaah ( أستغفر الله )?
[Whilst in prayer] some people raise their index finger when the imaam mentions the name of Allaah during his recitation; so is this [raising of the finger in this manner] legislated?
