  1. As Salamu'alaikum,

    Believer in God, I believe that your question is whether you can take Allah's Name in a bathroom? Otherwise, nothing is wrong with saying Allah's Name while bathing.

    With regards to saying Allah's Name in a bathroom / toilet, some scholars say it is Makrooh, while the others say it isn't .

    Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Sharh al-Mumti’ (1/130):

    If a person is in the bathroom, then Imam Ahmad said: If a man sneezes he should praise Allaah in his heart. It may be deduced from this report that he should also say Bismillaah in his heart.

    It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 5/94

    It is makrooh to utter the name of Allaah in the bathroom where a person relieves himself, out of respect for His name, but it is prescribed to say Bismillaah when starting to do wudoo’, because it is obligatory according to a group of scholars.

    Shaikh Albaani Rahimahullah was asked:

    "What is the ruling on mentioning the name of Allaah before wudhoo in the bathroom?"

    Shaikh al-Albaani replied: "You mean for example a small room, two by two meters, with a toilet on one corner and a washbasin on the other side in which you make wudhoo?"

    Questioner said: "Yes."

    Shaikh al-Albaani replied: "There is no problem with that at all, because the problem is only with mentioning Allaah ('azza wa jal) during the time he is sitting to relieve himself. This is the forbidden thing. But if he has finished and cleaned himself, and goes to the washstand and must mention the name of Allaah at that time, then there is nothing (wrong) in that, because this place is not the toilet, (rather) it is the bathroom. The toilet is in the corner; so if one sits there to relieve himself, then during this sitting it is forbidden for him to mention Allaah ('azza wa jal). Otherwise, just before that - before raising his garment - he must mention the name of Allaah, he must seek refuge in Allaah. So if he sits to relieve himself, it is forbidden for him to mention Allaah ('azza wa jal). When he finishes, what does he say? 'Ghufraanaka.' When he has said that and steps toward the other side of the bathroom, then he can mention Allaah and say whatever adhkaar he wants."
    (silsilat ul-hudaa wa nnoor, 224/4)

    From this, I would replace the wash basin with the shower or the bucket from which one takes a bath.

    If Shaitaan creates a confusion through waswasah, then simply say Allah's Name in your heart, thats it.
