Hadith Explanation

Recite before Entering Bathroom

“When the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) entered the washroom he would say, ‘Allahumma inni a’oodhu bika min al-khubthi wa’l-khabaa’ith.’” [Saheeh Bukhaari]

The meaning of this Dua is: “O Allah, I seek refuge with You from male and female devils.”

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told us to recite this Dua when entering bathrooms since “these places are inhabited by devils.” [Sunan Abi Dawood]
