Ask an Alim

Is it permissible to hang clothes in the bathroom.

Q:

Is it permissible to hang clothes in the bathroom. Or keep dirty clothes in the close bin in the bathroom?

A:

Walikum salam

Thank you for your question.

Yes,  there is no problem in that. what is important is that hygiene should be maintained.
It is good to know that even clothes glorify Allah (az) and they should be washed as soon as possible.

The holy Prophet has said:
اَنَّ الثَّوبَ يُسَبِّحُ، فَاِذا اَتَّسَخَ انْقَطَعَ تَسْبيحُهُ؛

indeed clothes glorify (Allah), and when it gets dirty it stops glorifying”
(
ref: Kanz al-Amaal, hadith no. 26009)

Hence, one should try and do laundry as soon as they can.
