Entering the bathroom with an object

Q: Is it permissible to say Tasmiyah (saying, "Bismillah [In the Name of Allah]"), Tasbih (saying: "Subhan Allah [Glory be to Allah]"), Tahmid (saying: "Alhamdu lillah [All praise is due to Allah]"), and Takbir (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]") inside the bathroom while performing Wudu' (ablution)?


A: All Praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions. To commence: It is Makruh (disliked) for a Muslim to mention Allah out loud while in a bathroom with a toilet in it, to show respect for Him. However, it is lawful to say Tasmiyah upon performing Wudu' - in fact this is obligatory - and also Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah), according to a group of the scholars.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
