Performing Wudhu/Ghusl in a Bathroom with a Toilet

Q: Performing wudu, ghusl in a bathroom that has a toilet in it. Is this permissible? Should the intention to perform the wudu/ ghusl and the short dua be said outside, before opening the door to the toilet/bathroom area?

A: Assalamu Alaikum,

It is permissible but Makrooh (reprehensible). The intention and Dua should be said outside before entering.
