What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Can one recite du’ās whilst performing Wudū’ in the bathroom?

Questioner: Abdullah from UK


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

If the toilet and bathroom are attached to one another, then one should recite the du’ās of Wudū’ in the heart, not with the tongue. Just as it is stated in Hāshiyah Tahtāwī,

وإن نسي ذلك أتى به في نفسه لا بلسان”

“(If someone goes to the washroom and) forgets the du’ā’ before, then one should recite it in the heart after entering, not with the tongue.”

However, even if they are both attached to one another but they are clearly separate from each other, for instance, if there is a small wall or even a glass wall between them, then one may recite the du’ās of Wudū’ whilst performing Wudū’ in the shower room i.e. the bathroom.
