Most of the peoples have this dangerous habit When they feel upset or depressed or distress they run over to the bathroom to cry (utmost people thinks it brings peace to them once they spend their time in bathroom by crying, in fact, it might bring them because of arbitrary they found peace in doing it).
“Verily, he [Shaytaan] and Qabeeluhu (his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe) see you from where you cannot see them” [al-A’raaf 7:27]
Anyways do you know mostly where does the Jinn reside? They live mostly in the bathrooms. Most of the peoples know this and still, they forget or neglect this, that the Jinn can harm or live in us. Do you know that being distress in the bathroom is the best way to make the Jinn able to harm you? So I suggest if you ever feel sorrow or feel like crying then rather than going into the bathroom just do Wadhu and offer 2 Rakah salah and cry in front of Allah! Subhanallah how immense feeling it will be.
Don’t forget to follow this Sunnah while going to the bathroom it will help us from Shayateen.
The Prophet PBUH has told us what we should do so that Allah will protect us from the evil of the Shayaateen when we enter the toilet. That is that before entering the place, the Muslim should say,
“Bismillaah, Allaahumma inni a’oodhu bika min al-khubthi wa’l-khabaa’ith (In the name of Allah, O Allah, I seek refuge with You from evil and from the male and female devils).”
Al-Tirmidhi (no. 606)
Narrated from ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (May Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah PBUH said:
“A screen will be placed between the eyes of the jinn and the ‘awrah of the sons of Adam when one of them enters the toilet, if he says ‘Bismillaah (in the name of Allah).” (Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 496).
Abu Dawood (6) and Ibn Maajah (296) narrated that the Prophet PBUH said:
“These toilets are visited (by jinn), so when any one of you goes to the toilet, let him say, ‘Allaahumma inni a’oodhu bika min al-khubthi wa’l-khabaa’ith (O Allaah, I seek refuge with You from evil and from the male and female devils).’” (Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah, 241). Dua for Leaving the Washroom or Toilet:
Al-Tirmidhi (7) Narrated that ‘Aa’ishah RA said:
When the Prophet PBUH exited the toilet, he used to say Ghufraanaka (Your forgiveness)
