Is it is ok to listen to khutbah while you are in the toilet?

Hi, my question is if it is ok to listen to khutbah while you are in the toilet, my understunding is that in the khutbah there are words or sentences from the Quran which I think is not a good act to do it. Could you please clearify this to me. Many thanks.


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear brother, there arise two cases:

  1. The Khutbah is given outside the toilet and the one in the toilet or bathroom listens to it.
  2. There is no harm in listening to Khutbah, if the Khateeb is outside of the bathroom or toilet.
  3. The Khutbah is played from some device inside toilet or bathroom.
  4. It is absolutely hated to listen khutbah, or quran or hadith inside bathroom or toilet from any divice.

And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
