1. Houses these days usually have ensuites in which there is a toilet and a
bathroom sink in the same area. When using such an ensuite
when should the dua of entering the toilet or exiting
the toilet be read? Also if a person is to make wudu at a bathroom sink located in such an ensuite can he/she recite the masnoon
duas read during wudu? And
if this bathroom sink is not regarded as part of the toilet can a person use it
with his/her head uncovered?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
1) - The dua of entering the toilet should be read before entering the ensuite.
- The dua of exiting the toilet should be read after exiting the ensuite.
- After relieving oneself, if one intends to make wudu in the sink, he can read the dua of “exiting the toilet” in his mind after putting on his clothes. However, he should not read the dua with his tongue while in the ensuite.
- He should read the masnoon duas of wudu in his mind, not with his tongue.
- He can use the sink without covering his head.
- When relieving oneself, it is mustahab to cover one’s head.
2) Yes, children who are not baaligh can touch the Quran and other books that contain Qur’anic verses without wudu. A boy can become baligh between the ages of 12 to 15 lunar years. A girl can become baaligha between the ages of 9 to 15 lunar years.
(Shami: 1/174, Saeed)
3) In such a case, it will be permissible for the person to break through the rows in order to make wudu. It will even be permissible for him to cross in front of those engaged in salat. This is regardless of which row the person is in.
(Ahsanul Fatawa: 3/297; Fatawa Mahmudiya: 6/579)
And Allah Ta'ala knows best.
