Is it permissible to make wudu and say bismillah and prayers in the bathroom and toilet?
The bathroom I use has a washbasin and a water closet. Is it permissible to say bismillah and make niyyah in such a place? There is also a place where the toilet and the washbasin are next to each other without a separator between them. Is it permissible to say bismillah and make niyyah there?

Dear Brother / Sister,
It is permissible to make wudu in the toilet and bathroom. However, a person who makes wudu there has to be careful and avoid splashing impurities on him.
It is permissible for him to make intention, say bismillah and wudu prayers silently, in a way that only he himself will hear.
