Question
I was wondering if it’s OK for one to be praying inside a mobile home. While there is a toilet room, And the septic tank Is attached somewhere at the bottom of the mobile home. The toilet itself has a mechanism that opens and closes its shaft While flushing.
Answer
Shalom, Thank you for your question. As long as there is a partition between you and the toilet (such as a wall and a door), and the smell of waste does not reach you, then it is permitted to pray in such a place. Even if someone else is using the toilet at the time of your prayers, because the door is shut, and the smell does not reach you, it is permitted to pray in the other room of the mobile home. Blessings.
