yes, it is allowed to perform ablusion in d bathroom,

but still, its no good talking in toilet and bathroon.

infact the prophet is reported to have said:

La tatakalam fil hudu. ( do not talk while performing ablusion.) but note, this is a makruhu not haram

@mukina2,

I do not think it is wrong to perform ablution in the bathroom as long as it is clean.

For those arguing on the Toilet Bathroom matter, need I remind you that purpose of the whole rule was to enforce cleanliness which was lacking in many homes. We all know that at the time of the prophet, most people are ignorant and dirty.

We all know the risks associated with dirts and toilets. One don't have to be a muslim to know that microbes thrive in toilets and that anyone who open his mouth often in that state exposes himself to great risk. So what the prophet did was to make it a must that we take care of our healths. Indeed, Islam make cleanliness an integral part of faith. And that is why we have all sort of rules.

However, we must clearly differentiate between what is "disliked" and what is "forbidden". Islam is clear about them.

To site an example. Once the prophet, S, was hosted alongside his companions and were serve Red-head lizard as meat. A companion asked him, whether the meat is forbidden. He replied that it was not, but the meat is not eaten where he came from. And thus, he didnt eat it. But he didnt bar others from eating it.

Some rules pertaining to "disliked" deed were not illegal but made to safeguard certain consequence. Another of such rule was "taking the same route to and fro solat jumah".

This was made with commonsense to safeguard against attack by enemies who often ambush muslims on their way from the mosque. I was alarmed when a guy in my area started calling those who didnt observe that rule "kafir!"

like someone have said, alot of things have changed since prophet time. We must be careful at the way we interpret sunnah.

I concludes this with prophet own words " WHAT IS FORBIDDEN IS CLEAR, WHAT IS COMPULSORY IS CLEAR. BETWEEN THE TWO ARE THOSE THAT ARE DOUBTFUL. IF YOU IGNORE THEM, YOU MAY IGNORE THE LAWFUL, AND IF YOU EXECUTE THEM YOU MAY EXECUTE THE FORBIDDEN. THEREFORE, OBEY WHAT IS CLEAR AND LEAVE WHAT IS DOUBTFUL."

Of course it is permissible as most houses this days have both bathroom and toilet in it. You just say your shahadah silently or when you come out. Wallahu a'lam

What is the different between urine and faeces as far as impurity is concerned?

There are differences between the toilet and the bathroom

Some scholars are of the opinion that one can speak in the bathroom while it's makrooh (disliked) to speak in the toilet, giving the reason that we do not urinate nor defeacate in the bathroom, but if it's a bathroom where people urinate regularly, then speaking in it or making adhkar is also makrooh.

It is not advised would be a better modification to the last post.

It doesn't mean when you are in "danger" or you need to respond to an urgent "call" from someone in the home, you won't reply.

As far as i know one can speak in the bathroom and even make dhikr but it is the toilet that it isnt allowed to speak in. If the toilet is separated from the bathroom then thats good so u could spk in it.

Wallahu a'lam
