Saying Bismillaah for wudoo’ when one is in the bathroom

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a Muslim, after relieving himself in the bathroom to say “Bismillaah” inside the bathroom and then do wudoo’, or should he go out, say “Bismillaah” then go back in and do wudoo’ (because there is no wudoo’ for the one who does not mention the name of Allaah)? Is it permissible to mention the name of Allaah when I am taking a bath in the bathroom?

Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked about that and he said: 

When a person is in the bathroom, he should say the name of Allaah in his heart and not utter it aloud. So if you are in this situation, do this. The more correct opinion is that saying the name of Allaah is not obligatory, rather it is mustahabb, but you should not pay attention to waswaas (insinuating whispers from the Shaytaan) or be negligent.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
