Ask The Imam Question and Answer

751 Can we place plants in the bathroom? We have been told that plants praise Allah (S.W.T) all the time. So is it permissible to have these plants in the bathroom?
In the Holy Quran Allah mighty states, The seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein, glorify Him and there is not a thing but glorifies His Praise. But you understand not their glorification. (17;44)

Hence, you are correct to say that all things –including plants- perform the praise of Allah, though we may not be able to understand it.
As for placing plants in bathrooms, there is no reason from Shariah to prohibit such a practice. Therefore it is Mubah, or permissible. Shariah prohibits Muslims from Islamic recitation in the bathroom; this ruling does not affect plants.
