Covering the head when entering the toilet


Recommended Posts

Q. I was told that it was necessary to wear a scarf when I enter the bathroom as it is Shaytaans home. Please can you clarify whether this is true or not
(Query published as received)
A.  The Hadith indicates that the Shayateen inhabit impure places such as the toilet and it is therefore advisable to wear a scarf or cover the head when entering the toilet.
Sayyidatuna Aa'ishah (Radhiyallahu Anha) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) used to cover his head whenever he entered the toilet. (Bayhaqi)
