Is it permissible to say Tasmiyah

Q: I read that it is not permissible to enter a toilet while carrying a Mus-haf (copy of the Qur'an). Does this ruling also apply to tapes on which the Qur'an is recorded? Is it permissible to enter a toilet carrying Islamic books or other books that contain the Name of Allah?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions. To commence: It is not permissible to carry a Mus-haf while entering a toilet. It is reprehensible to accompany tapes where the Qur'an is recorded and other Islamic books that bear the Name of Allah while relieving yourself if there is no need for that. But if it is necessary to do so, then doing so will not be reprehensible.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
