Validation of reciting the shahdah?

13 Jan 2022 Ref-No#: 4250

Can a person who is accepting Islam recite the shahadah in a place where there is impurity near them or on them and they are certain it is impurity? Is the acceptance valid?

Answer

Assalāmuʿalaykum Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh

Yes, the acceptance will be valid.

However, it is advisable for him/her to maintain etiquette when reciting the Shahādah as it contains the blessed name of Allāh ﷻ; hence, to avoid reciting it in the toilet or washroom for example.
