Uttering bismillaah when taking a bath
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Is it obligatory to utter bismillaah when taking a bath?

Response: Yes. Uttering bismillaah when taking a bath is obligatory, because the bath takes the place of the wudhoo, and [as is known] there is no wudhoo for the one who did not begin with uttering bismillaah.
