Taking a bath where one relieves oneself

Q: Is it permissible to not separate the toilet from the bathroom? If a Muslim is taking a bath in that bathroom, will it be fully and validly sufficient for them to be purified, since bathrooms are not always clean? Please give us your answer.


A: All Praise is due to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family, and Companions. To commence: It is better to keep the place where you take a bath separate from where you relieve yourself, to avoid any suspicion of Najasah (ritual impurity). Yet, if a Junub (in a state of major ritual impurity) or a menstruating woman is taking Ghusl (ritual bath) in a bathroom that is not separated from the toilet, their Ghusl is valid and they should beware of any impure sprinkles or drops.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
