Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Sometimes I feel afraid when I am in the washroom and I mention the name of Allaah in my heart. What is the ruling on that?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
A person should not mention the name of his Lord inside the washroom, because the place is not appropriate for that. If he remembers Him in his heart that is OK, so long as he does not say this out loud. Otherwise it is better not to say it out loud in this place; he should wait until he comes out.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
