Entering the bathroom with an object on which one of Allah's Names is engraved

Q: What is the ruling on mentioning Allah in the bathroom and what is the ruling on entering the bathroom with an object on which one of Allah's Names is engraved? Is it permissible to perform Wudu' (ablution) in this place?


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 in the bathroom, but it is Mustahab (desirable) to say, "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from evil and evildoers" before entering and "I ask You (O Allah!) for forgiveness" after leaving. Similarly, it is Makruh to (Part No. 5; Page No. 94) take an object on which any of Allah's Names is written or engraved into the bathroom and it is also Makruh to perform Wudu' there, unless there is a necessity.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
