Praying on the Roofs of Toilets or next to Them
Question:

Is it permissible to pray in a place in front of which is a toilet, when the only thing separating the two is a wall? Or is it better to pray elsewhere?
Answer:

There is no objection to praying in the above-mentioned place, so long as it is clean, even if the toilet is in front of it ... just as it is permissible to pray on the roofs of toilets, so long as they are clean, according to the most authoritative of two opinions held by the scholars. And through Allaah is attained success.
