Mentioning Allaah whilst in the toilet and bathroom

Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Tape No.34

Question: Is it permissible for a person to mention Allaah in the toilet, and a bathroom in which he relieves himself; for example, by saying ‘subhaa-nAllaah’ and ‘astagh-firullaah’ whilst he is [actually] seated on the toilet?

Response: That which is known amongst many of the scholars is that it is disliked to mention Allaah with one’s tongue [whilst in the toilet]. As for mentioning Him in his heart, and continuing to do this in his heart – then there is no harm in that.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
