Can I Perform a Ghusl In Bathroom If There is a Toilet In it?

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat


Can I perform a ghusl in the bathroom if there is a toilet in it?


I pray you are well.

Yes, it is permissible to perform a ghusl in a bathroom that has a toilet in it. Even if you had a shower in a place that has a toilet underneath the shower head, as some homes in the Middle East have, it is permissible. The flow of water purifies anything it passes over, as long as there isn’t any visible impurity. (Shurunbilali, Maraqi al-Falah)

May Allah fill our moments with the remembrance of Him.
